[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Aten
« on: February 26, 2011, 08:43:52 am »
Hotep!  *henu*

Yes the Aten exists,  and was worshiped long before Akhenaten came along and promoted worship of the Aten alone.  The Aten would not have put forth a view that it was the only true God as the Aten and all the Names are aspects of God.  Promoting the Aten to most important of the gods/names acknowledged would not have been wrong (the favored name/god of the  nisuts tended to get that treatment), however stating that the only way to pray to the Aten was to pray to Akhenaten, and forbidding the worship of all the other names  was wrong (he was telling the people of Kemet that they weren't pure enough to talk to the Aten (Netjer), only he was, so he would pass along their prayers).  So in effect he was preventing access to Netjer rather than making communion with Netjer easier which is and was one of the functions of a Nisut.)  Also the effect of his actions plunged the people into poverty and hunger as suddenly the people who worked at the temples tending cattle and raising crops, and creating the necessary materiels to keep the temples running were no longer employed (and part of their payment was temple offerings (bread, beer, meat, etc).  This is in addition to ignoring the political duties that went with being a nisut (which caused problems for border regions of the nation and vassal states which were encroached upon by other nations/peoples due to Akhenaten's preoccupation with the worship of the Aten.)

So in a nutshell, the Aten and Aten worship wasn't the problem, it was Akhenaten ignoring his responsibilities as nisut that caused problems for Kemet and her people.  There were other factors involved in promoting the Aten and closing the temples as well (attempting to stem the political power of the priesthood of Amun, etc).

Rejoicing that this transition has taken place as peacefully as it did (could have been better, could have been a lot worse too).  Praying that that change that comes for Egypt in the coming days and months is positive for the people and the nation.

Thanks for sharing that.  ^_^  It's easy to forget that Netjer is always with us in the day to day hustle and bustle.  Your post is an awesome reminder of that (i.e. that we're never alone)!  ^_^

Hotep!  *henu*

I'll defer to Niankh's clarification.  It's the first time I've heard from a source I would trust that it's safe to use from a ritual standpoint.  I remember the incense topic came up years ago in a chat and someone asked if Nag Champa was ok to use.  It was said to be impure due to the dung issue.  I don't recall the specific chat or which of the priests stated that it was impure.  Honestly it's the first time since then I've dealt with the question, so I apologize for the error on my part.  Nice to know that it can be used in shrine.  ^_^

Hotep Tanebet!  *henu*

So....it looks like it's a possible maybe genetic confirmation unless someone objects (as opposed to a definite maybe)  ^_^  I'm glad they cleared this up for us so we can almost absolutely, positively rest assured that the nisut Tutankhamum (AUS) is most likely to definitely be someone's son.....unless the tests prove inconclusive (he might be a pod nisut! from another planet!)  O_o

Nag Champa would not be ritually pure (which I remember annoying me years ago as it does smell nice and I remember getting a bunch of it right before I found out that it wasn't ritually pure for shrine use).  ^_^
