HELLIG 3 KONGER (EPIPHANY DAY)
DAY) (Dansk tekst nederst)
The text below is a copy of a
response to Dr. David Frawley, American Institute of Vedic Studies.
Dear David Frawley, (
Via a www-friend of mine,
Philip Johnson, I was directed to your website because of my interests
in Comparative Mythology related to Comparative Cosmology, and I want to
give the following response on what I’ve read on your pages, randomly
following text, it is IMPORTANT to stress VERY CLEARLY out the fact,
that my points of view describes a GLOBAL COMMON HUMAN RELIGION
and that the text CAN NOT be taken or quoted as describing
anything else but just that.

Secrets of the Yugas or World
Ages - Adapted from Astrology of the Seers, by David Frawley
According to the Vedic seers,
life on Earth is under the rule of vast cosmic forces that originate
from the stars. All that happens locally on our planet is a result of
forces coming from the distant regions of the universe. These are not
just distant regions of the physical world, but also of the cosmic mind,
the mysterious origin of things from which the underlying forces of
creation arises. These forces determine the nature of the time in which
we live. Usually we are so involved in the transient events of our
personal lives that we miss these great powers altogether. Like fish, we
fail to see the ocean. (Agreed on this)
The Ancestral stories of Creation, tells us primarily
of the basically cosmic elements and secondly, the story of Creation
relates specifically to the elementary Creation of our Milky Way,
telling the very opposite story of the modern science: Nothing is DRAWN
IN towards the centre of our galaxy, (This has been happening as a
FORMER STAGE of the Galaxy development) but NOW, later on, everything is
created OUT of and OUT FROM the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy. (
Harmonization with the Galactic Centre
An important cosmic event is
occurring now. (Happens
in fact every year - but of course with different qualities throughout
the bigger cycles of 23.600 years and so on)
The winter solstice is now at a point of conjunction with the galactic
centre. (Actually, such
a conjunction is 13 degree away from Winter/Summer Solstice alignment)
There is some doubt as to the exact location of this point. I would
place it at 06º 40' Sagittarius, or the middle of the Nakshatra Mula. (Actually 29 degree
Sagittarius accordingly to Modern Science. That is: The different
between the actual Summer/Winter Solstice Line and the Galactic Center
Line is approximately 13 (degrees) times 72 years = 936 year since the latest common
alignment between the 2 lines).
The Star Vega or Abhijit
Vedic astrology regards the
North Pole as the spiritual pole of the globe from which higher
spiritual influences come into the planet. However, the North Pole star
does not remain the same throughout the precessional cycle. (Does not really matter in the relevant
case below) At
the opposite side of the precessional cycle, the point of greatest
light, the bright star Vega (alpha Lyra) serves to mark the North Pole.
(Back “in those times”, yes)
Vedic astrology shows a
connection between our sun and the star Vega. Vega may be a controlling
star for our Sun, its guide; or perhaps our Sun may revolve around it or
with it around some greater center. Vedic astrology looks back to a time
some fifteen thousand years ago when Vega was the North Pole star.
(The Pole Centre was a little bit away from
Vega back then, but close to the Pole Point) Apart from the
galactic center, Vega may be another important point of light that
governs life on Earth. (The Vega Star was/is ONE PART OF “the governing lining rule” together
with the Star Sirius, in order to find the direction to the Centre).
The "Ruler" Line
Sirius AND Vega marks the cardinal Galactic line
going over the North Pole centre, starting of with a drawn line from
Sirius, over the North Pole area towards Vega, going further on to
the Centre of our Galaxy in the Constellation Sagittarius, 29
Primary Line dates:
Jan 3rd and July 4th.
At MIDNIGHT at Jan 3rd, the centre of
the Milky Way Galaxy is observed in the North. These 2 datum's marks
divides the 2 Galactic Seasons, created by the Earth orbit of the Sun.
These 2 Seasons could be called "Season of Galactic Light",
beginning at October the 4th with the high peak at January the 3rd and
decreasing until April the 4th, where the "Shaded Galactic Season"
begin, peaks on July the 4th and decreases until October the 4th.
Correction of the Epiphany
Observe this: I have made a
datum correction on the otherwise accepted datum of Epiphany Day at
January the 6th. Its my believe that the Epiphany Day originally was
installed in order to measure the day and angular difference between
Winter Solstice and the cardinal direction to the Centre of our Galaxy.
The Galactic Centre is
measured by Modern Science to be at 29 degree Sagittarius, which
correlates to January the 3rd. The angular difference is approximately
12,4 degree and when adding 12,4 days to the datum of Winter Solstice,
occurring between December 20 and
December 23, the Epiphany Day should
be between January the 2d and 4th. ( Link: http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.SolarSystem.htm )
Wikipedia “Epiphany” Links:

Each precessional cycle is divided into two halves:
an ascending half, in which the Sun is moving towards the point on its
orbit closest to the galactic centre, and a descending half, when it is
moving towards the point on its orbit furthest from the galactic centre. (Which Nakshatra (time) is “29 degree
Sagittarius”?) (I’m not familiar with the Vedic terms)
Following or loosing the Galactic Knowledge
If a Culture is using either the Moon or Sun as their
favourite choice of worshipping and practising their seasonal rituals, it’s important to know of the
precession movement of 1 degree every 72 year. (1 degree every 72 year
times 360 degrees = the 25.920 year Cycle = Earth, Sun and Stars/Galaxy
“The confusion between the lesser and greater cycles
has led to some errors in the occult view of history. H.P. Blavatsky and
her followers exemplified such confusion, as they based their views on
the Hindu texts that used the longer cycle and did not understand the
- If not remembering this precessional movement, the
cultural worshipping gets out of synch with the specific rituals and telling of
the Story of Creation, which is connected to our Milky Way Galaxy. A
telling now forgotten by many Cultures. In fact, I don’t know of any
actual Culture, ancient or modern, remembering this important fact,
which also seems to be the case in the quotation above.
But the Vedic Story may just be one of the few which
come closest to having a still alive Knowledge of this important matter.
The Symbols, Qualities and Meaning
From this link: http://www.barbarapijan.com/bpa/Nakshatras/19mula.htm
(The Nineteenth Nakshatra 00:00 - 13:20 Dhanus, Sagittarius) the
headline tells of: "The Root" (Direct route to the Galactic "Sun") and
several keywords, all regarding the telling of all life origin out of
the Centre of our Galaxy.
David, my personal and educational situation is: I
have no orthodox education or graduation. But via some spontaneous
spiritual experiences, I’ve been somewhat educated in natural
understanding of Mythology and Cosmology. But it is a GREAT CHALLENGE
for me in order to get forward towards intellectual Networks, going
against the orthodox establishments coming out with “new-old” ideas.
If it’s accordingly to a “higher order” to get my
views spread, I need ALL the help I can get!
So please, David Frawley, if you have any proposals
for me – or hopefully for both of us – in order to find some Comparative
Mythology and Comparative Cosmology Networks, I’ll be very grateful.
Please contact me!
Feel a very warm Welcome to take a good look at my
websites below and ask me any question on the contents.

Further remarks and Links
Liturgical Epiphany practice
in Western Churches
The West generally acknowledges a
twelve-day festival, starting on December 25, and ending
on January 5, known as
twelve days of Christmas,
although some Christian cultures, especially those of
Latin America and some in Europe extend it to as many as
forty days, ending on
the Feast of the Epiphany itself, the priest, wearing
white vestments, will bless the Epiphany Water,
frankincense, gold, and chalk. Chalk is used to write
the initials of the three magi over the doors of
churches and homes. Not only do the letters stand for
the initials of the Magi (traditionally named Caspar,
Melchior, and Balthasar), but of the phrase Christus
mansionem benedicat, which translates as "may Christ
bless the house".
There is also an ancient custom of
solemnly announcing the
date of Easter
on the feast of Epiphany. This tradition dates from a
time when calendars were not readily available, and it
was therefore necessary to make known the date of
in advance, since many celebrations of the
depend on it.
The Twelve Days of Christmas is probably the most
misunderstood part of the church year among Christians
who are not part of liturgical church
traditions. Contrary to much popular belief, these are
not the twelve days before Christmas, but in most
of the Western Church are the twelve days from Christmas
until the beginning of
Epiphany (January 6th; the 12 days count from December 25th until
January 5th). In some traditions, the first day of
Christmas begins on the evening of December 25th with
the following day considered the First Day of Christmas
(December 26th). In these traditions, the twelve days
begin December 26 and include Epiphany on January 6.
The Vedic tradition
Besides the light from our own Sun, we also
receive light from the center of the galaxy,
the galactic Sun. Much of the light of this
greater Sun, however, is not in visible
frequencies. Some astronomers have suspected
a central galactic light, like that of a
quasar, whose light may be obscured by dust
or nebulae in the region of the galactic
center. According to Vedic astrology, the
light from this galactic source has a
special influence upon Earth. It nourishes
and sustains intelligence in human beings.
This is not the materialistic intellect but
true intelligence, the capacity to perceive
the real or divine spirit in things and act
according to the Divine Will.
When the Sun is located on the side of its
orbit where its dark companion comes between
it and the galactic center, the reception of
the cosmic light is reduced. At such times
there is a dark or materialistic age on
Earth. When the Sun is on the opposite side
of its orbit and has an open reception to
the light of the galactic Sun, there is a
golden or spiritual age on Earth. Humanity
then acts in harmony with cosmic
intelligence and with Divine powers that are
its functionaries and emissaries. The Sun's
dark companion appears to possess a negative
magnetic field that obstructs the cosmic
light from the galactic center from reaching
the Earth. Through this it creates cycles of
advance and decline in human civilization.

Correction on the Sirius Star and the "Ruler Line"
1. Sirius is the FIRST
marking Star in order to find the "Ruler Line".
2. When first Sirius
(the biblical Bethlehem Star) shows up, it forewarns the most
important Star Constellation of Orion with its 3 "Belt Stars" (The
biblical "3 Wise Men")
3. The (hereby
corrected) directional "Ruler Line" starts of from the observation
of Sirius pointing to the constellation of Orion. A line from the
MIDDLE Belt Star, going over the POLE area, further on to Vega and
further on pointing to the Galaxy Center.
4. By this editing/correction,
this galactic "Ruler Line" should count for both the Northern as
well of the Southern Hemisphere.
Dansk tekst om Helligtrekongersdag

var dagen endvidere en offentlig helligdag. Helligtrekongersaften er aftenen før, altså den
Baggrunden for dagen er beretningen i Matt. 2, 1-2, hvor
- Da Jesus var født i
Betlehem i Judæa i kong Herodes' dage, se, da kom
der nogle vise mænd fra Østerland til Jerusalem og
spurgte: »Hvor er jødernes nyfødte konge? For vi har
set hans stjerne gå op og er kommet for at tilbede
(Citat fra den autoriserede danske bibeloversættelse
I den oprindelige, græske tekst
benævnes disse personer som mágoi (gr. μάγοι,
flertal af μάγος mágos), hvilket i samtiden bl.a.
var en betegnelse for perserrigets zarathustriske
præster, der havde indsigt i astrologi og drømmetydning.
Det ejendommelige er nu, at
evangelisten om "de vise" hverken siger at de var
hellige, eller tre, eller konger! Dette er noget som
senere tradition har tildigtet. Specielt er det
bemærkelsesværdigt at denne tradition ikke blev afbrudt
Reformationen i den danske
kirke i 1500-tallet. Oven i købet betegnes i
den dag i dag en hel række søndage som "søndage efter
Hellig tre konger". Hvis der falder en søndag i perioden
2. januar til 6. januar,
kaldes denne helligtrekongers søndag.
den svenske kirke og den svensktalende del af den
Evangeliske Lutherske kirke i Finland bruges betegnelsen
derimod ikke - man taler i stedet om "Trettondedagen
jul" eller blot "Trettondedagen", http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trettondedag_jul

Forklaringen på traditionens bevaring i Danmark er
antagelig, at man siden middelalderen havde gjort
pilgrimsrejser til det ikke alt for fjerne Köln, hvor de
formodede tre kongers relikvier nød veneration. I den
romersk-katolske kirke betegnes festen Epifani,
