Feasts of the Spring Equinox

Since the dawn of time, the Spring Equinox in spiritually and intellectually rich societies has been the celebration of life, love, regeneration, self-renewal, that is, fertility.

Its symbols are sunrise, spring flowers and shoots, the egg, the seed, rabbits known for their reproductive ability, and chocolate, believed to be an aphrodisiac. Its rituals are girl-soaking or its more recent variant, sprinkling, hunt for and gifting of painted eggs hidden in nests, and the manifestation of sexual desire. Its Magyar (Hungarian) name is still in want of research, but it's likely that it, too, labels notions also conveyed by the Ancient Greek "Eos" = Dawn Goddess, "Astare", "Astoret" = Virgin Goddess, Virgin Mother, Latin "Aurora" = Dawn Goddess. These names - according to several sources (e.g. Grimm Brothers) - are the roots of this feast's names in a variety of languages: E.g. "Ostara" in German, "Easter" in English, etc. The Sanskrit word "Usas" or "Ushas" suggests a similar concept, "awakening," "the beginning of new growth."

Spiritually and intellectually impoverished societies, having observed this feast but unable to comprehend the cosmic beliefs it's rooted in, have created hatred- and vengeance-based "religious" rites that more or less coincide with the Spring Equinox. These rites, born in such societies' imaginings, uphold and glorify values opposite to those above. They're rooted in anti-life, anti-love, anti-innocence and anti-purity ideologies, and celebrate the extinction of the lives of the innocent and the pure. Their priests slaughter their animals in great orgies, specifically targeting those considered to be innocent and pure - e.g. lambs -, and paint the doorways of their houses and businesses with the blood of these slaughtered animals. They believe this ritual will protect them from their vengeful god's executioner-angels, who, they believe, will "bypass" i.e. "pass over" such buildings when they exterminate the populations of cities. Given the opportunity, they upgrade their animal sacrifices to human sacrifices; here, too, specifically targeting the innocent and the virtuous. They performed this ritual killing, for example, in Tiszaeszlár, Hungary in 1882, when they slit little Solymosi Eszter's throat, an innocent girl-child certainly of moral purity, and collected her blood in a ceremonial pot. The name of this ritual is the Hebrew word "Pesah," "Pesakh," Yiddish: "Peysekh," "Paysakh," "Paysokh", "to bypass", English "passover".

Jewish sects conceived for non-Jews, the Judeochristian religions, also base their Spring Equinox rituals on the notion of "Pesah," and in several romance languages name them accordingly - e.g. "Paschal," "Paques," etc. In lands where Hungarian is spoken, the word for this rite is "Húsvét" literally "meat-taking", which, according to Judeochristian teaching, marks the end of compulsory fasting. Officially, Judeochristianity propagates this holiday as the celebration of Jesus' resurrection on Easter Sunday, but places the bulk of ritualism on Jesus' torture and killing that begins on Good Friday. Some denominations act out this process in gruesome detail concentrating on Jesus' torture. The religious Judeochristian believer goes to church both days, where he listens to the priest's sermon that focuses on the Jews as instruments of divine will, and the atrocities they commit as execution of their god's orders. The Judeochristian believer is required to glorify this people, its atrocities and its god if he wants to avoid perpetual suffering after death in a place or state called "hell"

If the Judeochristian believer wants to meditate, he reads the Gospels that deal with the subject matter until his eyes stumble onto John 19:30: "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished..." Unwittingly, a fundamental question emerges in his mind: What's finished?

The Judeochristian Churches, overruling Jesus' own words (spelled out in their own Bible), base their answer on one of Judaism's anti-life principles: "sins are purged with blood; and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness" (Hebrews 9:22). Although they package this dogma in extensive but illogical explanations, its substance is clear: The Jews killed Jesus to appease the bloodthirsty Jewish god, who has been exacting revenge on Man and his innocent offspring for millennia for the commission of a so-called "original sin" - the desire to know. One method to spread this dogma is by ritualized self-suggestion through the repetitious recital of such prayers as "Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." Such rituals then sustain his delusions of the righteousness of Judaism's anti-life principles. Similarly, he ritually sings endless "Hallelujahs" ("Hallelujah" = Hebrew, "glory to Yahveh), praising the Jews' god for the Jews' evil deeds. Today, in Judeochristian Churches teach that Jesus' "mission" was to become a human sacrifice, a "mission" that was "finished," "completed" when he died.

The Magyar "mag" faith, literally "seed" in Hungarian, "magos" in Ancien Greek, "magus" (plural, "magi") in Latin, symbolized by - among others - a sundisk, a sundisk with rays radiating from its center, by itself or around the head of incarnate divinity such as Jesus' or Mary, or its geometric representation, a cross more or less enclosed in a circle (e.g. the Hun or Celtic Cross), gives an answer not found in Judeochristian dogma: Here, we don't find any bloodthirsty, vindictive gods who demand human sacrifices, nor "original sins". Not even in the Gospels. Neither Jesus nor any of his disciples mention, anywhere, any kind of "original sin" or any kind of demand for human sacrifices, torture, or shedding of blood for the forgiveness of any real or imagined "sins". Furthermore, neither Jesus nor any of his disciples mention, anywhere, that Jesus took on a human form to become the human sacrifice to any kind of Jewish god. On the contrary: Jesus categorically rejects such immoral rituals: "I want [to see] mercy, not sacrifices!" (Matthew 9:13). As for his "mission" - if we insist on calling his incarnation a "mission" -, he himself defines that, too: "I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me will not remain in darkness" (John 12:46) (This is what Judeochristian Churches overrule - among others). Therefore, according to the Magyar faith, "it is finished" can logically refer only to this "mission." Combined, it could be stated as: "my work, specifically to see to it that everyone who believes in me will not remain in darkness, is finished." This faith teaches that Jesus' work began with his birth, known in Celtic traditions as Yule, finished with his death, and came to fruition as his resubstantiation into his incorporeal state on Easter Sunday.

The (real) apostles proclaimed and taught the essence of this festive event throughout the lands of the Magyars and their kindred (see the Christian priests' breviary): Namely, that Jesus, by conquering death, demonstrated his divine being. Moreover, he reeducated Man, taught him the truth about mankind's divine origin, and thereby made him aware of Man's ability to conquer death, too. According to the Magyar faith, Man is neither born in nor wallows in sin, Man doesn't have to be redeemed or somehow saved from any kind of damned fate: According to the Magyar faith, Man is God's child, who is given the opportunity to grow during his earthly life by following Jesus' teachings; to participate in the progressive Creation according to his state of readiness; and, as pure self-awareness, to return to his source, God, after his earthly life. He participates in Creation by living a healthy, biologically, spiritually and mental fertile life; and celebrates this divine gift every year during the Spring Equinox, just as he has been doing since the dawn of time.

Happy Easter!
