Spring Equinox Celebrations Welcome Light and Renewal

Thursday, March 20, 2014

In ancient times, one of the most joyous days of the year was the spring equinox on March 20-21. This day is celebrated all over the world under different names but among the horse people of the steppes the spring renewal was one of the most celebrated holidays of the year. According to folk tradition, the winter and summer solstices and the fall and spring equinoxes have dominant energies, often life-changing powers are attached to this day.

Spring equinox celebration carries the message of renewal, this is the time of purification and abundant hope. The Christian tradition celebrates this day as St. Benedict Memorial Day.

Among Hungary's closest relatives the celebration of the Spring Festival has utmost importance. In Kazakhstan, for example, it is a three-day holiday because the people of Kazakhstan consider the spring equinox the beginning of the new year.

People of Central Asia call this day Nauryz (or Nevruz, Naurus, Naurusz), which derived from the Scythian (Old Persian) “Nav - Ruz”, meaning New - Sun.

In Kazakhstan, at this time of the year people revive the old (pre-Islamic) shamanistic, Tengrist traditions, which call for the importance of respecting nature -- people plant trees, clean the parks and organize sports games.

During Nauryz celebrations people also consume ceremonial meal that must include 7 ingredients, symbolizing health, happiness, success, wisdom, growth, wealth and protection of Heaven.

The most important message of the spring equinox celebration is reestablishing harmony between man and nature by invoking the cosmic and spiritual laws of the Universe.

Spring equinox celebrations are getting increasingly popular in Hungary as well, especially with traditional communities. On March 20 to 21 people light bonfires across the country demonstrating that this old tradition did not disappear over time, just a little faded.

Nationalist writer Tom Sunic discusses European identity and the importance of Paganism in that identity. The reality is - like the Communism disaster, Western liberal Parliamentary "democracy" anc "capitalism" are too far gone to be saved. Europeans need to return to their cultural, heritage, traditions, faiths - their roots - to save society.

Good culture and lots of fun !

Tom Sunic - Metapolitics, Paganism & European Identity March 5, 2013


Tom Sunic (Tomislav Sunic) is an author, translator, former Croatian diplomat and a former US professor of political science. Mr. Sunic has published books, essays and newspaper articles in French, German, English and Croatian on subjects of cultural pessimism, politics, metapolitics and European identity. We’ll hear about the ideologies of what has been coined as the “European New Right,” (Nouvelle Droite) co-founded by the French philosopher and academic Alaine de Benoist. We converse about diversity, race, sociobiology and egalitarianism. Tom explains why The European New Right, embraces paganism as the only reliable way out of the Judeo-Christian based political systems. Later, we approach White racial issues and factors contributing to pathological White guilt, self denial and self censorship. Sunic talks about the dire need for Europeans to proudly embrace their ancient European pre-Christian culture and identity. We end the hour on the America Freedom Party.

Time to return to tradition.

Friedrich Georg Jünger: The Titans and the Coming of the Titanic Age by Tom Sunic


...However, if a reader or a researcher immerses himself in the symbolism of the European myths, let alone if he tries to decipher the allegorical meaning of diverse creatures in the myths, such as for instance the scenes from the Orphic rituals, the hellhole of Tartarus, or the carnage in the Nibelungen saga, or the final divine battle in Ragnarök, then those mythical scenes take on an entirely different meaning. After all, in our modern so-called enlightened and freedom-loving liberal societies, citizens are also entangled in a profusion of bizarre infra-political myths, in a myriad of weird hagiographic tales, especially those dealing with World War II vicitmhoods, as well as countless trans-political, multicultural hoaxes enforced under penalty of law. Therefore, understanding the ancient European myths means, first and foremost, reading between the lines and strengthening one’s sense of the metaphor.

...What is Titanic about man? The Titanic trait occurs everywhere and it can be described in many ways. Titanic is a man who completely relies only upon himself and has boundless confidence in his own powers. This confidence absolves him, but at the same time it isolates him in a Promethean mode. It gives him a feeling of independence, albeit not devoid of arrogance, violence, and defiance. Titanic is a quest for unfettered freedom and independence. However, wherever this quest is to be seen there appears a regulatory factor, a mechanically operating necessity that emerges as a correction to such a quest...

Europeans need to return to their deep spiritual roots.

Stephen A. McNallen - Hour 1 - Asatro, Runes, Vikings & Norse Mythology
March 28, 2014


Stephen A. McNallen is a prominent religious leader of the native European path called Asatro. McNallen established the first legally recognized Asatro organization in the US in 1972 and quickly became a prolific writer and speaker on the subject on Germanic Paganism, which broadly includes the ancient tribes of Northern Europe. He believes that spiritual fulfillment is best achieved by following the ways of one's ancestors. This ancestral approach to Asatro has put him at odds with many who insist on a universalist worldview. He's also a proponent of “upward evolution” for the individual and the group, encouraging others to incorporate daily spiritual practice in their lives. The Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA), is the most active and successful national group in the U.S., holding major gatherings on both coasts each year plus dozens of regional events around the country. The AFA is international in scope with members in the UK, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Spain, South America, and Australia. In the first hour, we’ll discuss Christianity’s invasion of Europe and Viking rage caused by missionaries. We talk about the misconceptions and vicious stereotyping of the Vikings, who were sophisticated people. Stephen discusses the belief system of Asatro, an expression of the native, pre-Christian spirituality of Europe. He speaks about Europe’s loss of soul, caused by the disconnection with Indo-European ancestors, and the importance to reawaken that ancestral wisdom. In the second hour, we speak about the Vatican’s hold of Europe and what might occur if Europeans do not integrate their ancient native religion into this century. We’ll also hear about runestones and more spiritual concepts found in Norse mythology. Later, we talk about the slaughter of Norse people, suppressed European mythology and the re-emergence of the ways of old that existed for thousands of years in Europe before the invasion of Christianity.
