Native Slavic Faith has always met with criticism in modern times. It mainly happens because of modern religions, which find themselves in competition with something so ancient, that it is practically hardcoded into our DNA. The main criticism which it faces is that it’s “not real” or “made up”. In order to once and for all put that at rest, let us take a look at Native Slavic Faith in different parts of the world.
It really does not matter where in the world you find yourself, odds are, you have taken part in one or more Slavic (or Pagan) Celebrations and did not even have a clue about it. One Slavic celebration that is celebrated by many people around the world is Christmas, another is Easter; both are ancient Slavic celebrations, which were changed by the church in order to submit all of the pagan Slavs, who were forced into christianity. The church figured that since they could not take away the pagan celebrations, they would simply change their names and give them own meanings.
To add to that, it does not matter which modern Slavic country you travel to, whether it is Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, Czech and so on; if you explore the Native Faith of that country, you will find that the true Native Faith of that country goes back many thousands of years and finds its roots way before any other religion ever existed on this Earth.
At one point, I chose to compare the Native Faith of people from remote areas in Russia with a Native Faith of people from remote areas in Ukraine, only to find out that not only celebrations, traditions, customs and rituals were very similar, but that the heritage was almost identical as well. This heritage was recorded in a form of a calendar that dated back over seven thousand years (according to Kolyady Dar, it is the year 7524), and was almost identical, even though these people lived separate from one another for thousands of years.
On another occasion, I was speaking to a Serb and we were discussing different customs and celebrations. Imagine our surprise, when the celebrations of both of our Native Faiths turned out to be almost identical.
Another great factor are the Slavic languages themselves; or better said, the different dialects of the same language. Most Slavic people, who speak the language of at least their grandparents, and not the modern “Slavic language” that has been diluted with foreign words and terms, will easily understand representatives of other Slavic cultures, who will speak a different dialect that came from the same Old Slavic language. It is even more than that; an individual who is able to speak and understand the Old Slavic language, will have no trouble communicating with people from India, who speak and understand Sanskrit (we’ll talk more about Slavic and Aryan campaigns to India later).
I cannot speak for all, but I can speak for myself. My main language for communication is Russian (not the modern Russian, but the Russian spoken by our grandparents), I can also speak Ukrainian. After my short trip to Belarus, I learned that I can easily speak and understand Belorussian. Some time later, I picked up a book in Serbian and learned that I can easily read and understand Serbian. Even later, I discovered a book in Moldavian and understood that I can read and understand that language as well. Finally, I came across copies of the original planks of the “Book of Veles” and understood that I could easily read and understand more than half of it, with having to put some effort forth in order to understand the other half … and that book was written right around the 9th century of the current era (so over a thousand years ago). And I never learned anything more than Russian and Ukrainian languages of my grandparents.
What I’m trying to say here is this: if you are of Slavic descent, your DNA is hardcoded for all things Slavic, for our traditions, cultures and languages are older than time itself. When we come across ancient Slavic writings, our brains begin to break down those writing subconsciously. On many occasions it gave me quite a headache, but the results were unbelievable. So even if our conscious minds cannot understand what we see, our subconscious mind can easily understand it. And sooner or later, the truth will come to us. It does not matter if your are Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian, Belorussian and so on – We are all brothers … even if distant ones. Be proud of your heritage and culture! Slava!
