Jive Talk: Arya Akasha and the Nordic-Vedic alliance



Arya Akasha is a research institute headed by Tristan and Curwen who join me this evening to discuss their theories on religion. They study and live the wisdom of the medieval Norse pagan religion and the Ancient Vedic religion. Their theories concern all Indo-European religions but focus specifically on two: the Nordic and the Hindu. I have lots to ask these learned chaps and I am sure you do too!

I feel like I've been waiting for this stream for ages since it was announced, and it did not disappoint! Thanks for putting this together. I hope you three can have further discussions in the future!

We need more of this kind of conversations. The whole world used to be Vedic Aryan. When we stopped offering oblations in the fire sacrifices to our forefathers and the demigods , that’s when we lost our Vedic connection.

I’ve always held that if nothing else is available and if it’s not one of the high festivals you can just use water because what’s most important is the rite as an act of devotion. But aside from that I think that an offering to the Germanic pantheon should consist of three elements each representing fire, ice, and wind respectively. This is to emulate the first sacrifice of Ymir, who was created by the coming together of the fires of sokkdalir, the ice of niflheim, and the wind of the gravid void. In that we’re not only emulating the first… Read more »

Random Question, but I just got out of the movie Midsommar, and I wanted to know your thoughts, both of the movie in general and of its interpretation of Swedish pagan rituals…

What your guest misses in talking about demons is that in Greek daimon means like a lesser god and doesn't mean the same as Asura in Vedic literature (that would be the Titans to the Greeks). Daimon is more like deva, isn't it? I.e. a lesser god. Therefore Brahma gods would be likes Theos gods to the Greeks. (Obviously this is theoretical, and crappy theory also.) To use Abrahamic language, what the Greeks called daimons and the Vedics called devas would be angels. The thing is though Christianity decided to make the lower Greek gods evil, hence the word daimon… Read more »

Hi Tom,

What are your thoughts on Confucianism? I personally find it refreshing in this age of fanatical Semitic religions and Aryan pagan revivalism frankly. All this talk about God, Allah, demons and gods, monotheism vs polytheism is all just superstition. The atheistic or at least agnostic nature of the Confucians with their advice to keep ‘the gods’ at arms length is good advice I think.

I thoroughly enjoyed the talk, HOWEVER, I'm afraid the guest got his etymology of Asura wrong. Asura actually comes From Proto-Indo-European *h₂ń̻suros, from *h₂ens- (“to engender, beget”). Cognate with Proto-Germanic *ansuz. But ansuz is Proto-Germanic for god! You see the irony of the situation, the talk is about conciliating Germanic and Vedic religions, but what the Hindus call demons is what the Germanics called gods! Of course the answer to this minor issue is that Hinduism is a successor (albeit legitimate) religion to the historic Vedic religion, and the rigid separation between asuras and devas, demonization of the former, are… Read more »

Interesting discussion, but you seemed to ignore the fact that so much of Greek and Roman paganism, and Hinduism as well for that matter, is NON-Indo-European in origin. So much of these traditions comes from the older cultures which pre-dated the arrival of Aryans/Indo-Europeans, namely those descended from the Neolithic and Copper Age farmer cultures in Italy (the Etruscans) and Greece (the Minoans, etc.), and the Indus Valley and related civilizations in India. The Greeks referred to these pre-Greek peoples as "Pelasgian", but their most famous representative is the Minoan civilization which had such a massive influence on the later… Read more »

What are your thoughts on Zoroastrianism? It seems to be a more pure derivation or evolution of the original Indo-Iranian religion without the massive Indian (Indus Valley civilization) deities and other elements of Hinduism.

Btw in Russian epos Bylinas there is a story about wizard king Volh Vseslavyevich. His mother was a human and his father was a snake (she stepped on snake and became pregnant). So Volh decided to conquer Indian kingdom. He came to the capital of the kingdom with 7 000 wariors. He turned himself and his wariors into ants, moved over a wall, then turned back into humans and they killed all people in the city except 7 000 women and the queen. So Volh and his wariors married those women… I see here allusions to Aryan invasion/migration in Indian… Read more »

Dividing the Gods into Gods and Demons and present the Universe as a struggle between Gods and Demons seem tainted by Abrahamism to me. However, Hinduism is vast. It will contain many perspectives within it.My perspective on Norse Paganism is that the Gods and the Jotun are just us and them. The Gods can marry Jutun and have offspring with them. They are the same species. Jotheim and Utgard are just places far away from the farmstead, they are places not known well (by us) and venturing out there is dangerous but can bring back knowledge and treasures. So the… Read more »

Great stream, I know some people are complaining about the Kiwi and as an Aussie out of everyone I should hate him the most, you know what though? He may sound pompous and whatnot but he knows his shit and is obviously well in the know on the subject. Stop complaining and learn a thing or two.

The Kiwi guy (Curwen?) had such a self-indulgent style of talking in endless rambling monologues that made it impossible to for me to listen to this show to the end. Maybe allow the discussion to flow more freely, mate? Maybe consider the fact that there are two other people who may have something interesting to contribute? Very pretentiously annoying. I'll stick to STJ shows that doesn't indulge this Curwen guy.
