Per Heru Moving Forward
The post was written by Uab Setna and submitted on his behalf by Asar Maat.
Per Heru restarted classes on April 7th 2019, this time with a more narrowed focus. Over the years we have done studies in varying areas of the teaching. So it is at this juncture, the impetus is to focus on a specific aspect of the teaching, namely the teachings of Lord Heru.
Towards that objective, the intent will be to engage in the mythic, ritualistic and philosophical content of the teachings of Heru. In the mythic component the myth of Shetaut Asar, Aset and Heru (The Asarian Resurrection) will be used.
Absorption of the Mythic:
Historical aspects of Heru; eg cities where worshipped, traditions.
Shetaut Asar, Aset and Heru:
specific attention being placed on the various forms of Heru
Deities associated with Heru.
Symbols, regalia, weapons associated with.
Study of glyphs.
Other mythic scripture: Glorious Light Meditation.
Absorption of the Ritualistic:
a) Creating series of postures related to Heru
b) Researching and observing holy days of Heru
c) Meditation based on mythic scriptures
d) Creating divine music dedicated to the deity
Absorption of the Mystical
a) Study of Philosophy based on Heruian Philosophy
b) Study of iconography
c) Teachings from our preceptors
The above is by no means exhaustive and we will be depending on guidance from our preceptors as this is virgin territory in some regard.
Resources that will be used, but not limited to are:
Pert m Hru
Gods and Goddesses Encyclopedia
Intro to Heiroglyphs
Glorious Light Meditation
King of Egypt
The above books are by Sebai Maa.
In addition as a resource we will utilize Barbara Waterson’s book; The “Temple of Horus at Edfu”.
The above will be done as a class setting where students will engage in the research and assignments given.
