What is Asatru?

Long before Christianity came to northern Europe, the people there – our ancestors – had their own form of spirituality that influenced every aspect of their culture. One expression of this European spirituality was Asatru. It was practiced in the lands that are today Scandinavia, England, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and other countries as well. Asatru is the original, or native, religion for the peoples who lived in these regions. Nevertheless, Asatru is more than just a religion in the narrow sense of the word. It is our way of being in the world; some of us call it the “Germanic Folkway” to underline this larger concept.

What does the word “Asatru” mean?

It means, roughly, “belief in the Gods” or “those true to the Gods” in Old Norse, the language of ancient Scandinavia in which so much of our source material was written. (A more literal translation would be “gaining experience of the ancestral sovereign gods.”) Asatru is a name given to the religion of the Norsemen, but we use this term to include the spiritual worldview of all the Germanic peoples, not just the Scandinavians.

When did Asatru start?

Qtddtot:

Is there a religion that has the same morality of "blood and soil" that asatru does, but with the morality taking precedence over the gods/myths part?

Something like ancestor worship or sun worship maybe?

So I have been thinking about taking up Yoga. Now I am not taking this up to be trendy. But after listening to several people talk about its benefits and thinking about it for some time I am considering taking it up.

I have had back issues for a year now and been doing stretches anyway for months for it. But I have always felt I am not getting a deep enough stretch.

Stephen McNallen even wrote a blurb about how he does Yoga and that swayed my opinion more in its favor.

Anyways what does everyone think?

In this thread I will discuss nudism and how it can relate to the "white" race or rather Aryanism and how that can correlate with esoteric things including but not limited to paganism, etc.

First of all, - to people who say nudism is a subversive element today, I would agree with them, although it was not always that way and it doesn't have to be that way any longer.

When I say subversive, I mean people who are nudists not for any higher purpose, ie, not to practice our traditions as a race, or in worship/imitation of dieties, or as body worship. Rather, these people use nudity as an excuse to push their leftist bullshit. See free the nipple.

Nudism was a common aspect of all Aryan cultures prior to Christianity. The ancient Aryans who spread out from modern day Ukraine were nearly all unclothed, though it was not uncommon to wear accessories such as cloaks, fur, etc, espically in the colder climates. We, as whites, all descend from these people, from White Persians to Irish.

But you need monogamy to have social cohesion.

Otherwise the average man won't find a wife. Ths is why people should be married young.

Healthy sexuality and sex should be encouraged but so should marrying young.

It doesn't matter if you're screwing someone as long as the end result is babies. Birth control is the grratest societal ill of all time because it makes sex purely masturbatory and removes any pressure to get married young. One of the main reasons to get married young and have lots of kids used to be that people wanted to have sex.

Let's have a thread about survivalism in accordance with our beliefs. If you give some thought to it, the germanic farmers from days of yore were pretty much preppers too. Their villages were more or less completely self-sufficient. Everything they needed to live and sustain themselves and their offspring they grew within the viccinity of their settlements. They were very much like northern american natives when it came to using natural resources and leaving next to no residue/pollution behind, in sharp contrast to the romans whose civilization already arrived at spenglerian industrialist proportions by the time they had expanded to the Rine.

I am firmly convinced that if our folk is to survive in the 21st century and beyond, we must embrace the ways of living of our ancestors once more and supplement/fuse it with 21st century technology, like for example 3D printing and electronic information sharing technology, and of course also prepping itself.

Here are some good links to get you started on this

Goats will eat any vegetation scraps and weeds, and you can use them pretty effectively to clear plots of land. Dogs will eat any meat scraps. Pigs will eat both.

Chickens eat almost anything, mostly bugs and seeds. A good technique is to move their coop around, or section off a portion of a large coop, to rotate the chickens around and let the bugs and seeds repopulate. Eat all the roosters except one lucky motherfucker. Keep all the hens laying eggs and if they stop or slow dawn, eat them.

Sheep will eat almost any vegetation growing on the land. They will tend to tear out plants by the roots, which can ruin prime pasture. Sheep are great to raise on tough land.

Gerbils and hamsters can be crossbred into gerbster, a meaty rodent valuable after the apocalypse.

Here is the deal: (and you can’t deny this). War is so apparently on the horizon that if you have not prepared in any way whatsoever, YOU SHOULD DO IT NOW.

I’d bet you think it will cost you thousands and there is a mountain of things you need to do. NOT SO! Super basic survival preparation can be done on the CHEAP.

Let’s assume you are staying where you are – (practically everyone will,) – for virtually all people “bugging out” is just a romantic idea. Let’s be serious here. Ok, so you are staying put. Here is the most basic thing you could ever do that will have zero damage on your image (you won’t “look like a nutter”) and practically ZERO impact on your wallet.

I have given bug out advice in the past. That is not what this is.

You need calories. At the end of the day, that is what it all boils down to. For meat just eat pigeons or whatever, you can forget getting it in war and you can’t really have chickens anywhere in America without a snoot nosed neighbor turning you in. And you have to have them before the war. Damned if you do, and you will be damned without them so accept the catch 22.

Anyway, here is the cheapest solution that will keep you alive possible:

Go to a grocery store, such as Sams Club or (if you are lucky) any other store that sells bulk basics. Did you know you can get a 50 pound bag of flour, all clean and nice and prepared for about $20? Heck, you can even find it for $15 if you are lucky. One of those bags would keep you going for a long time. Get 10 and hide them so no one thinks you are a nutcase. They will hatch bugs in a couple years, but if we are still around in one piece that long from now who cares and a sifter will get the bugs out anyway. With only flour and water, you can make unleavened bread. If tshtf and it all goes crazy, I promise, no street thug is going to take your flour, they don’t know what to do with it and probably would not even know what it was. And you have a gun and bullets already anyway, RIGHT? Better say yPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>War is so apparently on the horizon

Could be anon. A war between the big countries is closer than I've ever seen it before for sure. If it doesn't happen though the brewing civil strife definitely will, in Europe for sure but there's more time to prepare for that even now so you should if you are able.

I'd like to add to your post. If you live rurally or semi-rurally then try and tap into the rural economy, even if it means helping out your local farmers with free labour once in a while or do favours etc. Anything that helps you network and make friends. Farmers and rural people are some of the most resourceful people there are and they have networks that span the entire country.

People often forget the human element when it comes to survivalism and prepping for the worst. Having friendly people around you whom you can trust, even if it's just your neighbours is a big plus in such situations and it's never too late to cultivate solidarity with your own people.

ITT let us collect greenpilled documentaries on the norse faith aswell as various associated/peripheral topics.

I'll start with this one here:

Secrets of the Viking Sword

>The Vikings were among the fiercest warriors of all time. Yet only a select few carried the ultimate weapon of their era: the feared Ulfberht sword. Fashioned using a process that would remain unknown to the Vikings' rivals for centuries, the Ulfberht was a revolutionary high-tech tool as well as a work of art.

>Considered one of the greatest swords ever made, it remains a fearsome weapon more than a millennium after it last saw battle. But how did Viking sword makers design and build the Ulfberht, and what was its role in history? Now, NOVA uses cutting edge science and old-fashioned detective work to reconstruct the Ulfberht and finally unravel the Secrets of the Viking Sword.==

The Håga mound (Hågahögen) or King Björn's barrow is a large Nordic Bronze Age burial mound near Uppsala, Sweden. It is one of the most magnificent remains from the Nordic Bronze Age and contained a lot of gold and bronze items. It contains a man who was cremated on a pyre, just like Patroclus in Homer's Iliad.

This video looks at the amazing golden sword and gilt golds buttons and brooches from the barrow and compares them to the wider Indo-European pagan custom of burial mounds for great men. You might say a man buried with so much gold was a Golden One….

The Trundholm sun chariot in the thumbnail and the video was not found in the barrow, it was found in Denmark and is from roughly the same period.

The word Ostara is just one of the names applied to the celebration of the spring equinox on March 21. The Venerable Bede said the origin of the word is actually from Eostre, a Germanic goddess of spring.

We hail the Goddess of spring,

of vibrancy, of stirring bounty,

of the waking earth,

that readies itself for the seed.

We hail the Goddess of sunshine,

and cycles, and changes,

and all good and terrifying things.

We pray for fertility in our works,

of minds, and hearts, and hands.

We pray for blessings,

and the gift

of hope’s manifestation.

We hail the Goddess of spring,

as Her bounty covers the land.

Eostre, be Thou praised.

Not only Tacticus who at least hints at mercur being a very important one, but a lot of inscriptions to mercurios in the romanised rhineland around the first to second century and also some christian writers still using the name of Mercur to relate to Wotan.

Paulus Diaconas from north italy, wrote in the 7th century about the past of the langobards saying they used to worship wotan called mercur by the romans.

More sources like that exist but they are all rather vague and only short. Also the authors could have had historical misconceptions just like it can happen to us.

>not any of this

Mercur lead souls of the dead into the underworld as he was a messenger and contactman in that way too. Wotan carrys the souls of the dead around him during the wild hunt. Fertility was slapped to all gods imaginable as it was such an omnipresent wish as health or sucess at searching jobs today is. He was a cattlegod too in rural greece afterall. But you are right that the connections are not sufficent and end in grasping at shit like both of them wearing flat hats.

I brought mercurios mostly up to show that the equation to roman gods is kinda fickle as differing accounts exist. Just making a tabella where all the european pantheons fit in with every Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I remember reading somewhere that some Romans said the ancient Germans worshipped Mars above all other gods, which is what they called Tyr (Tuesday is the day of Mars in latin languages)(Thor they associated with Hercules). Tyr is etymologically said to descend from the same Indo-Euro root word that formed Deus and Zeus.

I suspect that the supremacy of the berserkers in the norse lands led Odin to be considered the chief god, but everywhere else in the Germanic lands, Tyr may have been.

>supremacy of berserkers

While Wotan/Odin may have been a god of ecstasis which fits to these kinds of warriors, thinking that the supremacy of Odin in the north stems from them alone conflicts with two things that come to my mind.

Firstly the germanic world wasnt static, from the observations of Tacticus around 90AD to the migratory period around the fifth century ad until the late viking age of the north that ended only in early medieval times some cultural upheaval happened.

Germanics in the first to second century encountered roman culture in the westernmost areas and got assimilated to some extend, while the rest of germania magna remains mostly unknown but likely had some established rulers, that got ended with the migratory age that was so chaotic that even the huns left some imprint (a germanic tribe briefly adapted central asian headbinding from following hunnic warlords Ive read) it is in this time that most academic sources agree on Wodan rising to supremacy among them a development stemming from the south not the north.

Accounts of missionarys mention Wotan in bavaria and the alps as an important deity. This could be because the migratory period toppled the many old chiefdoms of the germanics in favour of flexible wandering warlords who lorded over new tribes merged from the old ones that needed a new identity.

These people who may not have come to power from established noblelines but by more meritocratic or populist means favouring a wandering, ecstatic god over the old Tyr/Tiwaz makes sense. If they were berserkers or from associated circles I do not know.

Serious acadrmic Literature about Wotan-Odin in this context was made by Kris Kershaw and Otto Höfler. I need to read up about this myself.

Odins establishment in the north as a result of the turbulent migratory period was and stayed mainly a phenomen among the nobles and chiefs of scandinavia who now were new garants of stability again.

For these courts , the skalds made literature.

>Scandi commoners during the viking age are said to prefer thor in contrast.

From my understanding Thor was a god of workers (farmers, craftsmen, etc Not thralls though there is a distinction) so those workers would make a bulk of their sacrifices to him.

The more however I learn of Norse/Germanic lore the more I get the feeling though there was no particular chief central deity. I mean sure Odin is the Patriarch of the gods but I do not find his importance dwarfing any of the other gods. I am sure Odin was always thought of and honored but I think your status in life dictated which god was central to you.

This is just a feeling I have though. I mean I am sure Odin got more mention because he was a central god to nobility. But ask a lawgiver who an important god to him was and he would probably say "Tyr". Ask the same of a workmen and he would say "Thor" and if you asked a fertility priest they would say "Frey and Freya" etc.

Wrong

Tacitus also mentioned that the Germans went to war wearing wolf-pelts and other beasts , and shouting like madmen and biting their shields. all of that is exactly how the beserks were described only beserks carried bear pelts (and there are some vague references to beserks to wore wolf pelts called ulfhedinn, similar to those in germany)

beserks were much older than just norse and were inherent o germany culture, it was a part of their warrior cult. in fact in the girmoires that ive read like the picatrix, the 3 occult books and the red dragon, they say that offerings done to mars should be done wearing a very specific suit, where you wear a wolf pelt adorned with belts and red ribbons, and wear every weapon that you own and clang them together. This seems like some small remnant of a beserk cult in roman culture, so I suspect is is an ancient aryan thing. the fact the romans did it with mars though I think implies that originally it had more to do with Tiwaz, and Odin must have adopted it when he became the chief god. Norse sagas would contradict this though, they say Odin first taught men to be beserks, and usually norse sagas are fairly accurate (they recounted events from the early germanic migration, thats pretty old for oral records)
