Title: Names of Netjer
Post by: BKHoward on October 22, 2018, 08:42:15 am
Em hotep,

I have recently been looking into Kemetic Orthodoxy these past few months and have applied for the next beginners class.

A question I have is that I have been reading through all the information and trying to learn as much as I can but my memory isnt great, is it required to learn all names of Netjer and information on them? Or do people only tend to learn a few and look up information on others when required?

Thanks

Ben.

Em hotep nefer, Ben! :D

It's not necessary to know ALL the various Netjeru personally. There are no "quizzes" in that respect. You're also not going to engage with EVERY Netjer(et) in your personal practice across your lifetime. There are literally hundreds of individual Netjeru; it's impossible to know Them all, much less know Them all extensively.

But, absolutely, if you feel the need to research any given number of Them, definitely do. :)

I hope this helps!

Senebty,
Sedjfai

Em hotep, Ben!

I agree with Sedjfai in that you do not need to learn all of the Names of Netjer. Some people know many of Them, but some people only focus their worship on a few Names. It really just comes down to personal preference :)

Senebty,
Endy

Thanks

Nobody knows ALL the Names of Netjer.
There are thousands ;-)

Em hotep!

I've been Kemetic for a really long time, and really... I don't have a vast knowledge about other Names outside of my divination line up, and our household Gods. I tend to learn about a name as I go, and as They show up in my life. So yes, there are folks who get along just fine with looking up the Netjeru as needed. :)

Senebty and good luck!
