God Shiva, Mithra, Zeus, Isis, Diana

  Edited May 10, 2012

Let’s look at druidic explanation.
This outline of categories of Indo-European Deities is based on work by Celtic Scholar, Raimund Karl
http://www.druidry.org/obod/deities/index.html

THE GOD OF THE TREE FRUIT in Celtic mythology or spirituality is Cernnunos. In Greek mythology is Dionysus. 


EARTH FATHER in Celtic is Cernnunos again. In Greek is Pan and Dionysus. As I have shown earlier Dionysus was god of ritualistic madness, orgy, and wine.
Secondly, DAYTIME AND NIGHTTIME CONTROLLER OF THE UPPER REALM in celtic are Lugh and Cailleach -Queen of Air and Darkness.In Greek Daytime and Night time Controller of Upper Real is Hermes and Apollo. Interesting, isn’t it?

So, let’s look at druid mythology about Cernnunos that resembles Shiva.

THE GOD IN THE WILD WOOD
At the Sacred Centre, in the Grove of all Worlds, He sits with legs crossed beneath an ancient Oak. Entranced, connecting the three worlds  Earth, Sea, and Sky and the worlds behind the worlds, the god and the Great Tree are One.
His limitless root web growing deep into secret earth and Underworld.. Through the forest stillness they come, whispering wings and secret glide, rustling leaves, and silent step, the first Ancestors, the Oldest Animals, to gather around Him: Blackbird, Keeper of the Gate; Stag of Seven Tines, Master of Time; Ancient Owl, Crone of the Night; Eagle, Lord of the Air, Eye of the Sun; and Salmon, Oldest of the Old, Wisest of the Wise leaping from the juncture of the Five Springs.

The god whose eyes flash star-fire, whose flesh is a reservoir of ancient waters, His cells alive with Mystery, original primeval essence. Naked, phallus erect, He wears a crown of antlers limned in green fire and twined with ivy. In his right hand the Torq of gold, testament of his nobility and his sacred pledge. In his left hand the horned serpent symbol of his sexual power sacred to the Goddess. Cernnunos in His Ancient Forest, His Sacred Temple, His Holy Grove, Cernnunos and His children dream the Worlds.

Cernnunos worked his magic when the first humans were becoming. Our prehistoric ancestors knew him as a shape-shifting, shamanic god of the Hunt.
He is oldest of the Ancient Ones, first born of the Goddess. At the time of First Earth, Cernnunos grew in the womb of the All Mother, Anu, waiting to be born, to come forth to initiate the everlasting, unbroken Circle of Life.
Cernnunos, as The Horned God, Lord of the Animals is portrayed as human or half human with an antler crown. Though he wears a human face his energy and his concerns are non-human.
In his Underworld aspect Cernnunos is The Dark Man, the god who dwells in the House Beneath the Hill, the Underworld.
Pan, lusty Satyr god of the Greeks is another aspect of the Horned God. "Pan is a proud celebration of the liberating power of male erotic energy in its purest and most beautiful form." (5) He is portrayed as playful and cunning, but He also has a darker, dangerous nature. 
In modern times he is often called the God of the Witches and embodies uncorrupted masculine energy. A masculine energy that is fully-developed and in balance with the natural world.
As Lord of the Dance He is present in the billions and billions of infinitely small movements that make up the seemingly chaotic Dance of Life, the Dance of Making and Unmaking. He is truly the Life that never, never dies, for even as nothingness he is self-originating. He is triple as She is triple. He is Cernnunos: Father, Son, and Wild Spirit.
Let’s look at Isis myth.
After she assimilated many of the roles of Hathor, Isis's headdress is replaced with that of Hathor: the horns of a cow on her head, with the solar disk between them. Sometimes she also was represented as a cow, or a cow's head.
But Set went hunting that night and found the box. Enraged, Set chopped Osiris's body into fourteen pieces and scattered them all over Egypt to ensure that Isis could never find Osiris again for a proper burial. Isis and her sister Nephthys went looking for these pieces, but could only find thirteen of the fourteen. Fish had swallowed the last piece, his phallus, so Isis made him a new one with magic, putting his body back together after which they conceived Horus

Lord Krishna
Residing in water as sapidity, the Supreme Lord is known as the essence. Residing in the sun and the moon as luster, He is known as illumination. Residing in the Vedas as His very self, He is known as the pranava original sound vibration OM. Residing in the ether as sound Lord Krishna is known as the word.
http://www.bhagavad-gita.org/Gita/verse-07-08.html
 
He is a word. It sounds familiar but he is not Christian God. So, who is he?
In Greek alphabet O is 15 letter. It is called OMicron. According to Robert Keith Spencer 15 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word for God, JAH, which is one of the forms of the Tetragrammaton.
Let us look at this mural squarely from the viewpoint of the esoterically inclined, the occultist. There is an asymmetrical arrangement of the entire mural into what is called a "Magic Square," which is a square arranged in an equal number of cells — in this case nine — three rows up and three rows down. The game tit-tat-toe is based on this type of square. The talismanic magic vertically, horizontally, and diagonally, will give the samesum." The following nine digits14 so arranged as to add up to 15 in any direction were regarded as sacred, because 15 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word for God, JAH, which is one of the forms of the Tetragrammaton:4 9 2
3 5 7
8 1 1 6
 Who is OM? We know that Krishna is OM. Hebrews called 15 as the numerical value of God. 15 in English alphabet is O. In Hindu we have The Mantra Om Kali Ma. Shiva is called OM Shiva, Krishna OM Krishna. In Buddhism we have The Mantra Om Mani Padme Hum. Sai Baba is called OM Sai Ram, Adi DA is called OM Adi Da.

Blavatsky also said that the name of God is O.




Let's look at Shiva, Hindu God.

Shiva is Nepal’s most important god; his image can be found in thousands of temples, escorted by his vehicle, the bull Nandi, and holding a trident in his left hand. Shiva’s residence is Mount Kailash in Tibet and we’re told - especially by saddhus - that he is a passionate smoker of hashish. The lingam, Shiva’s fertile phallus symbol, is the predominant offering idol of Nepal.

Whats about the Bankers & there Wall-street cable with there bull & Horn Symbolics?
I will get back to the meaning of bull later.


Let's look at Greek mythology.

The Minotaur, the infamia di Creti, appears briefly in Dante's Inferno, Canto 12,11-15, where, picking their way among boulders dislodged on the slope and preparing to enter into the Seventh Circle,[17] Dante and Virgil, his guide, encounter the beast first among those damned for their violent natures, the "men of blood", though the creature is not actually named until line 25.[18] At Virgil's taunting reminder of the "king of Athens", the Minotaur rises enraged and distracted, and Virgil and Dante pass quickly by to the centaurs, who guard the Flegetonte, "river of blood". This unusual association of the Minotaur with centaurs, not made in any Classical source, is shown visually in William Blake's rendering of the Minotaur (illustration) as a kind of taurine centaur himself.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minotaur

In Greek mythology, Pasiphaë (English: /pəˈsɪfə.iː/; Greek: Πασιφάη Pasipháē), "wide-shining" was the daughter of Helios, the Sun, by the eldest of the Oceanids, Perse;
She was also the mother of "starlike" Asterion, called by the Greeks the Minotaur, after a curse from Poseidon caused her to experience lust for and mate with a white bull sent by Poseidon. "The Bull was the old pre-Olympian Poseidon,"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasipha%C3%AB

he offspring of their coupling was the monstrous Minotaur.
Nowhere has the essence of the myth been expressed more succinctly than in the Heroides attributed to Ovid, where Pasiphaë's daughter complains of the curse of her unrequited love: "the bull's form disguised the god, Pasiphaë, my mother, a victim of the deluded bull, brought forth in travail her reproach and burden." Literalist and prurient readings that emphasize the machinery of actual copulation may, perhaps intentionally, obscure the mystic marriage of the god in bull form, a Minoan myths alien to the Greeks.

 Moscophoros (Calfbearer) is an ancient Greek statue of cow-bearer (c. 560 BC). It is currently housed in the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece.

Let's look at god Zeus who turned into a bull to rape Europa.

Rhyton in the shape of a bull's head a the Greek pavilion at Expo '88


A rhyton (plural rhytons or, following the Greek plural, rhyta) is a container from which fluids were intended to be drunk, or else poured in some ceremony such as libation. Rhytons were very common in ancient Persia, where they were called takuk (تکوک). The English word rhyton originates in the ancient Greek word ῥυτόν (rhŭtón).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhyton
A libation (Σπονδή spondee in Greek) is a ritual pouring of a drink as an offering to a god orspirit or in memory of those who have died. It was common in many religions of antiquity, including Judaism:
"And Jacob set up a Pillar in the place where he had spoken with him, a Pillar of Stone; and he poured out a drink offering on it, and poured oil on it". (Genesis 35:14)
Libations continue to be offered in various cultures today.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libation

 The worship of the Sacred Bull throughout the ancient world is most familiar to the Western world in the biblical episode of the idol of the Golden Calf made by people left behind by Moses during visit to mountain peak and worshipped by the Hebrews in the wilderness of Sinai (Exodus). Marduk is the "bull of Utu". Shiva's steed is Nandi, the Bull. The sacred bull survives in the constellation Taurus. The bull, whether lunar as in Mesopotamia and Egypt or solar as in India, is the subject of various other cultural and religious incarnations, as well as modern mentions in new age cultures.

Moloch

Golden Calf, Nicolas Poussin Let's look at Mithra and a bull.

 The Worship of the Egyptian Bull God, Apis, by  Filippino Lippi

Mithra  is the Zoroastrian divinity  of covenant and oath. In addition to being the divinity of contracts, Mithra is also a judicial figure, an all-seeing protector of Truth, and the guardian of cattle, the harvest and of The Waters.

The term Mithra is from the Avestan language. In Middle Iranian languages (Middle PersianParthian etc.),Mithra became MehrMyhr etc., from which New Persian and Armenian Mihr ultimately derive.

Mithra is described in the Zoroastrian Avesta scriptures as, "Mithra of wide pastures, of the thousand ears, and of the myriad eyes,"(Yasna 1:3), "the lofty, and the everlasting...the province ruler,"(Yasna 1:11)]"the Yazad (divinity) of the spoken name"(Yasna 3:5)] and "the holy,"(Yasna 3:13)

Together with the Vedic common noun mitra, the Avestan common noun miθra derives from proto-Indo-Iranian *mitra, from the root mi- "to bind", with the "tool suffix" -tra- "causing to." Thus, etymologicallymitra/miθra means "that which causes binding", preserved in the Avestan word for "covenant, contract, oath".

Mithra and the Bull, Vatican 

Let's look at catholic church.

But we also have Goddess Artemis Ancient Greek deities / Goddess Diana Lucifera Roman mythology. Goddesses loved cows, didn't they?



Let's look at Egyptian goddess Hathor.

Sculpture of Hathor as a cow

Hathor as a cow, wearing her necklace and showing her sacred eye – Papyrus of Ani. Hathor as a cow, wearing her necklace and showing her sacred eye – Papyrus of Ani.

Ra, in the form of the goddess Hathor went into the hiding places, striking fear in the hearts of men. Much of mankind was slain. Hathor returned to Ra after the first day as mighty as a lioness. Taking the form of Sekhmet, she declared, "I have been mighty among mankind. It is pleasing to me." But having tasted blood, Sekhmet would not be appeased.

Ra now realized that Hathor-Sekhmet would destroy the human race completely. Angry as he was he wished to rule mankind, not see it destroyed. There was only one way to stop Hathor-Sekhmet, he had to trick her. He ordered his attendants to brew seven thousand jars of beer and color it red using mandrakes and the blood of those who had been slain. In the morning Ra had his servants take the beer to the place where Hathor would viciously slaughter the remnant of mankind. Ra's servants poured the beer mixture on the fields. And so, Hathor-Sekhmet came to this place where the beer flooded the fields. Looking down, her gaze was caught by her own reflection, and it pleased her. She drank deeply of the beer, became drunk, fell asleep, and abandoned her blood thirsty quest.

 Let's look at trident.
 Shiva has one as well as goddess Kali has one too.




Posejdon was one of 12 Olympian gods . Devoted to the animals is a dolphin and an ox , and his sacred tree is the pine.

Let's look at a fleur-de-lis. Why did they like a trident and a fleur de lis? I will expand more on fleur -de -lis later.

  Goddess Isis

We may find a fleur-de-lis in many coats of arms. I will go back to the fleur -de-lis.

Goddess ISIS 

By the late Egyptian historical period, after the occupations by the Greeks and the Romans, Isis became the most important and most powerful deity of the Egyptian pantheon because of her magical skills. Magic is central to the entire mythology of Isis, arguably more so than any other Egyptian deity.
In many spells, she also is completely merged even with Horus, where invocations of Isis are supposed to involve Horus's powers automatically as well.
Throughout the Graeco-Roman world, Isis became one of the most significant of the mystery religions, and many classical writers refer to her temples, cults, and rites.
Mystery religions, sacred Mysteries or simply mysteries, were religious cults of the Greco-Roman world, participation in which was reserved to initiates.
The star Sopdet (Sirius) is associated with Isis.

In art, originally Isis was pictured as a woman wearing a long sheath dress and crowned with thehieroglyphic sign for a throne. Sometimes she was depicted as holding a lotus, or, as a Sycamoretree. After she assimilated many of the roles of Hathor, Isis's headdress is replaced with that of Hathor: the horns of a cow on her head, with the solar disk between them. Sometimes she also was represented as a cow, or a cow's head.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isis

In 1888, the Isis-Urania Temple was founded in London,[10] where the rituals decoded from the cipher manuscripts were developed and practiced. We have connection with Crowley. 

Kemetic Wicca is a variation of Gardnerian Wicca that follows an Egyptian pantheon. Some Kemetic groups focus on the trinity of Isis, Orsiris and Horus and utilize prayers and spells found the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead.

This may give some explanation why M.P. Hall 33 degree Mason and Blavatsky, a member of several Secret Societies were so focused on Egyptian religion.


Goddess Isis


 Goddess Isis and Osiris

I couldn't see it earlier. It may explain a lot.......to those who have eyes wide opened. 

She has winged helmet , winged sandals, and caduceus like Hermes

Let's look at Diana and Isis.

           St.Louis caduceus   
I have found an interesting explanation of hand sings - mudras. It is an occult meaning of hand signs. Occult means hidden. I have shown earlier mudrs in Buddhism, Catholic church and Baphomet. Let's look at occult meaning.

Let's look at hand signs. Another name : cosmos signal. Alternative names: "Dragon symbol of the Cosmos", "Cosmos signal", "Throwing the Cosmos".

This is the Roman hand of Power. The hand as an amulet, can be traced back as far as 800 BC. The ring finger and pinky are bent down to reveal only the thumb, index finger and middle finger. It's also similar to the Benediction gesture.

And our sweethearts. Poor Micheal, he wanted to be ....a Peter PAN......boys and goats lover....




We have symbols everywhere that have a hidden meaning. Now, we know more about bull symbols and trident for example. But we need to crack the hidden meaning. It is so important to look at symbols. A couple of years ago, I looked at symbols in Vatican and church. I was shocked when I saw a swastika. But when I read that it was Sieradzki cross, I stopped seeing swastika but cross. I took a considerable mental effort to switch and see swastika. I realized that this is a way they control us. No wonder that Blavatsky said, “Hermes wisdom that Moses initiated in” and Hermes as I wrote about his roles created words and language. We need to crack it. Secondly, when we look at images we find similar symbols. Let's have a look.



 Imperial Coat of Arms of France
Coast of Arms of pope Urbano VIII
We may ask: what is bee doing on French coat of arms and pope's coat of arms and the bee queen as you have seen earlier. We look at symbols deeper and see X on both coats of arms. We see the same symbol on in Egypt. So, we may really ask WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
