В The legends tell of the power of the sign, which helped people to learn the secret knowledge, to gain special wisdom. The Magi combined all the key images of Slavic mythology in the ornament to use for good. Later the sign spread in the military tradition, helped the knights.

Lada is the ancestor of the Slavic gods, who gave people a similar symbol with rounded petals.

Commandments of the god Svarog. Svarog's Cones carved on the original Alatyr-stone
The great god Svarog gave his children the Laws of Right, according to which we follow our Way of life from birth to death in every incarnation in the world of Yav. "Prav' contains the root of all words of the Russian language which unambiguously mean the TRUE, loyalty, the only true way, for it is commanded by gods from the beginning of time, such as: PRAVda, PRAVî, PRAVilî, PRAVit, sRAVno, sRAVedness, SRAVedness. Listening to the voice of Conscience in our hearts, we follow the Righteous Path commanded to us by the Gods and our wise ancestors. Conscience means "common message", it has lived in our hearts since the dawn of creation, it gives us the ability to distinguish right from wrong, to make a choice in accordance with the Supreme Law of Right.
Svarog also gave us commandments, by following which we do not allow ourselves to stray from the Way of Right and establish ourselves in Dharma (a Sanskrit word with a similar meaning, meaning "following one's supreme destiny"). As soon as we veer off the right Path, striving to live for ourselves, selfishly meeting the needs of the person with whom we identify in this particular incarnation, instead of following the laws of Conscience, it leads to sin, the essence of which is "wrongness", "fallacy", which leads us off the right path of the Right Path commanded by the Gods of the Wise.
It is clear - there is a right path and a mistake (or sin) that we allow - it is the source of accumulation of the very negative karma that keeps us in the net of the cycle of reincarnations until the lesson is learned, until the understanding of the true meaning of life and the need to follow the right path of the Right Path, from which one should not turn away, is achieved.
For us, born in the era of Kali Yuga, when righteousness and morality have declined, and not everyone hears the voice of Conscience, and some do not even understand the meaning and significance of following the Path of Right, gods and ancestors commanded moral and moral principles, which must be followed at three levels: at mind level (in thoughts), at body level (by actions) and at speech level (words).
Thus, the basic principles are as follows: No harm to self or others, no stealing, abstinence in pleasing one's senses, non-judgment, truthfulness, angerlessness, avoidance of evil thoughts, absence of vanity... Moral and moral principles are the basis of our life, their essence is the same in all beliefs and religions of different peoples and ethnic groups, for they were commanded to all mankind at the dawn of creation by our bright gods, so that it would be easier for us to manage our way on earth in dark times.
On the sacred stone Alatyr, which lies on Mount Meru in the center of the world, which is the source of all things, all the forces of the Universe, Svarog inscribed were runami Great Laws of Right, they now burn with Svarog fire righteous in our hearts. Here, to the sacred Alatyr, was brought in ancient times, the birds from the heavenly Irian sacred Book of Doves, a treasure trove of wisdom of our ancestors. The Laws of Right keep the world of the manifest and the manifest in balance. In the main commandment "To honor the native gods and ancestors, and to live according to Conscience and in harmony with Nature" is the essence of the Righteous Path. Live in harmony with the world around us and with yourself, may misfortunes be unknown to you.

Svarog's square is recommended for politicians
This amulet is recommended for politicians: it helps to gather, concentrate, concentrate on the main thing.
Svarog, to whom the powerful amulet is dedicated, differed from the rest of the pantheon by his love of working with his own hands, without resorting to divine talents. He gave his children a yoke, a plow, taught them how to work the land, get and gather crops. He gave them weapons, taught them to defend their native land, and to protect their families from enemies. The Slavs believed that he created fire, the earth, the daylight. Every source of living fire is a sanctuary of Svarog.
Svarog god of the Slavs - smith of the universe
Svarog - the Grandfather of the Gods was praised for what awaits us. Svarog - the eldest God of the God Rod, And to the whole Rod - an eternal spring that flows from the roof in the summer, in the winter does not freeze, Lives that water drinkers! We also lived, till the time expired, Till we ourselves went to Him, To the blessed meadows of paradise.
"The Book of Veles," Glorification of the Triglav.
Svarog essence of the Spirit of fire, the spring of Rod in our Universe, in Svarga trislavnaya - Yasuna11 luminous and majestic abiding.
To realize ourselves as a part of the whole, to know that we are part of the single divine family, created by Forefather Svarog - means to elevate our consciousness, to feel the divine fiery forces in our hearts, filling our eyes with bright light, To feel in ourselves the divine power, the spark of fire, which is related to the bright gods, perceiving the world as a unity of diversity, created from a single source. On the path of spiritual self-improvement we comprehend higher truths and bring our consciousness closer to the perception of the unity of being and all things in the universe.
Faith in the gods has never died out in our hearts, for we cannot extinguish the fire in our hearts except by turning our thoughts away from true knowledge, from the original. For our gods are our kinsmen, born of the same original light. Therefore we glorify and honor our gods, we do not beg and plead. We can address ourselves to our gods only through praise, honouring them as ancestors, as elder kinsmen, who long ago fulfilled their earthly Path and now follow along their righteous path in the bright worlds of the heavens.
The majestic god-Creator Svarog divided Yav and Nav, he forged the earthly and heavenly firmament in the Forge of the Highest, and a myriad of stars were kindled in the heavens owing to the boiling fierce activity taking place in the Forge of Svarog in the dawn of time.
The first fiery sparks from the blow of Svarog's hammer were the first light gods - his sons. Svarog's sons are bright gods, luminous and life-generating - the sunny Dajbog, the first Svarog's spark revealed in our world, the second spark, from heaven to earth, the heaven and earth kindred Perun the thunderer became, and the third spark revealed in our world the fiery force of Ognebog Aguni, or Semargl, his fiery brightness for the gods from people accepting the rewards.
What is different between the Star of Russ and the Star of Lada
Some people believe that it is the same symbol. It seems so at first sight: the signs are visually very similar, though not identical. The differing details of the ornaments encrypt the sacred meaning of the images. The star, devoted to the Mother of God, looks more delicate, as the petals are smoothed, rounded. The symbol of Svarog has sharp, pointed ones.
The only external difference is the form, which demonstrates the difference in content. The symbols are fundamentally different in their content, magical properties, and purpose. The Star of Lada is a talisman for women who help women. Svarog's square is predominantly masculine, warrior's, craftsman's.
Svarog - god who patronizes warriors, craftsmen
Svarog in the Triglav of gods
Svarog is a patron god of the Russian Vedic pantheon. Svarog in Triglav divine appears as a personification of the creative power of God-Creator of the universe, manifested in the male face of the god Rod, while his wife Lada-mother is the female face of the Supreme Creator Rod. When Rod takes the guise of the Creator-Svarog, the god Rod creates the Universe, when he takes the image of the almighty Perun the Thunderer, he stands guard over Yav and Navi, protecting the border of the world of the manifest from the dark entities, while Rod, who took the face of the wisest Veles, performs the processes of transformation, rebirth and resurrection. Just as in the Vedic Trimurti, the gods are the forces of creation, preservation and destruction of the universe.
All our gods wisdom are the faces of different gods of Rod, and whatever god we praise, we always revere in the face of its original creator. Svarog was manifested by Rod's will, Perun by his strength, Veles by wisdom, Dajbog by light, Lada by love... The many-faced Rod manifests his essence in each of his creations. So, Svarog is the first creation of Rod, his assistant in his creative action, who completed the creation, ordered the space and the laws unshakable in the created world. Thus do we live to this day by these laws, by the path of the Right until we realize the truth, until we comprehend the essence of all that exists in our world, until we deny our souls of all ego strivings which divert us from the right path and keep us in the whirlpool of reincarnations. Truly, every man is the smith of his own happiness. Live according to the Right, as it was commanded by our wise gods, as Svarog the forefather approved at the dawn of time, and you shall know no misfortunes and sufferings of this world.
To the glory of our kind!
For the good of all living beings!
The appearance of the Star of Russia amulet and its magical properties
The power of the amulet is explained by the connection with the three planes of existence: Navya, Yavya, Pravya. The basis of the magical pattern is an eight-pointed star. Nave inscribed in it - the world of the departed, the abode of souls, hidden from the living and full of tranquility. It is here that the dead find eternal rest. Yav is the plan of life, the real world. Prav is the divine, the most important. It governs the rest of the universe.
From history we know that the eight-pointed star meant for the Slavs the progress of time and the three elements that form a person: consciousness, body, inner power.
The rhombus included in the ornament encoded the fertility of the earth. The most important place was revered as sown with wheat.
Outside the main figure are four lines. In them positive human traits are encoded:
Some historians believe that the Slavs coded the world known to them with these lines, as the dashes are directed to different parts of the world.
The sign symbolizes the unity of the masculine and feminine. Previously, it was believed that the universe exists only as a result of the interaction between man and woman, light and darkness. The solar circle, protecting the symbol, concentrates averting qualities of the amulet, reflects love for the world around, vision of existence. Looking closely, you can see in Svarog square also Kolo, filled with the energy of the sun. This element reflects the development of the soul, movement. The full interaction of the details of the pattern has not been deciphered even today.
The most powerful magical property of the symbol is the ability to curb evil. This is possible with the unity of the masculine and feminine. The sign merges opposing energies in a single good stream. This symbol symbolizes the union of two opposite genders in a three-quarter turn..
Amulet protects the host. The power of the sign drives away misfortune, bad luck, unfavorable circumstances. It connects the wearer and the secret Slavic knowledge, the power of the roots. The Magi use the symbol to receive great wisdom from the higher world. It is not easy to reach enlightenment: it is available only to a person with pure thoughts. Do not use the ornament for mercenary purposes - it immediately deprived of energy.
Svarog square protects against evil, enemies.
Svarog. Analogies in the Vedic pantheon of gods
The ancient Slavs believed in one god, they worshipped him as the ruler of the sky, the source of divine power, they called him Prabog. The other gods were descended from the supreme god, the essence of his products, intermediaries between him and the world.
"An Outline of Old Slavic Fables and Mythology."
At the dawn of the world's existence there was chaos, darkness, inertness, passivity, lack of order... And now, in this chaos the waters of life were formed, where the breath of the God-Creator created the world cosmic egg; the male principle of the divine essence appeared in it, from which Prajapati, the progenitor of all living beings, was manifested. The Supreme spirit-great-grantor contains all of creation in itself, and the creator-god manifests it in visible form. Svarog is the god who emanated all things from himself, so the Earth and our entire universe appeared. Svarog is the essence of nature, which he manifests out of himself. So each of us is a particle of the god-creator, and in each of us shines the original spark of life, manifested from the one divine essence.
In the mythologies of different peoples, there are similarities in the stories concerning the creation of the universe. Thus, a single original, monogenesis of all peoples, languages and cultures took place unambiguously. We are descended from one and the same ancestral people. And in a single pranolanguage we once spoke. However, the peoples' dispersion lasted for thousands of years, and the single focus of culture has been forgotten. God the Creator, who was once called by one name, is now represented under different names in different faiths and religions. In the process of the isolation and independent development of the separated ethnic groups there was a transformation of the image of the main celestial god-creator. If we talk about the original god-creator, the heavenly supreme god, he was called in different ways, so, for example, in Iran it was the omniscient god Ormuzd, or Aguramazda1, venerated as the greatest of gods and glorified in "Avesta"; similarly the Greek god of heaven Uranus, later replaced by Zeus; the Italian fourfaced2 god of gods Janus, creator of all things; and others.
If to speak about initial Indo-European community and common forefatherdom of Russians and, in particular, Hindus, about this affinity it is already told much3, and there is no doubt that we follow from a unique source on the Earth, which was the forefatherdom Hyperborea4 . In the process of developing new territories and settling them by the separated ethnic groups the customs and language were transformed and the culture, which was once the same for all, was changed.
Thus, after many centuries, in our hearts again find an echo the narratives of the events preserved in the ancient epic tales by the Indian people, the custodians of knowledge. Thanks to them today we can once again turn to the writings about the past and perhaps even recall the events that took place in the ancestral home of mankind, which are preserved to this day in our ancestral memory, but it is not accessible to everyone - we have closed the gates to the past to our memory, For we have fallen into the pursuit of earthly goods and worldly pleasures, we have turned away from the light of truth, and our past has been subjected to oblivion and desecration, because true knowledge has been replaced by false information, but we have not recognized immediately where is truth and where is falsehood.
So, let's consider how the Slavs called the god of heaven: the southern ones called him Dyya, or Diy, - here we can see the etymological similarity with the god-creator Dyaus5, mentioned in the Rigveda as the original light god of heaven. In the West it is Svyatovit, the god of the gods of the Baltic Slavs. The eastern gods are Belobog, Ded (Did) and Svarog.
Svarog called the life giving birth and light giving god, fiery fiery force filled the universe, awakening it to movement and life, the son of the god Rod, originally being in the universal egg, Svarog breathed in a powerful force (in fact, in the face Svarog Rod was manifested), to lead to universal order created by him creation. In Indian mythology, he may correspond to the Vedic gods of heavenly light, such as Varuna, Indra, Aryaman and Mitra. It is also likely that the creator-god Brahma is analogous to Svarog.
Brahma is the creator of the universe, the "architect" of the world, who manifested the world from the universal cosmic egg Mahadivya6 - the primary cause in the original emptiness, who was born in the divine lotus symbolizing the abstract and concrete Universe, whose seeds contain the prototype of the future world, which grows from the pupa of Vishnu - the primary basis of all things, which are in the boundless cosmic ocean. So in the Russian Vedic tradition god Vyshen - existing beyond time and space, unchanging, eternal, the one who was not born and will never disappear, he is infinite cosmic space, eternally staying at rest. There is a movement in it, as if rippling on the surface of the ocean water, which is a manifestation of the first original thought - the idea of the world's creation, and this is the manifestation of the god Rod.
Svarog manifests this idea in material form. Thus, the lotus is a symbol of the transition from the abstract to the concrete, reflecting the manifestation of the material world from its invisible form, once hidden in divine thought. It awakens all forms of life into existence. The world cosmic egg is a single cosmogonic archetype used to describe the creation of the universe in the mythologies of many nations. The four faces of the god Svarog, as well as Brahma, look over all four sides of the universe, so that nothing is hidden from his gaze in the created world.
Thus, the creation of the universe and living beings is narrated in the Brahmavaivarta Purana; the Bhagavat Gita reveals to us the revelations of Vishnu (Vyshenya) as represented by the avatar Krishna to Arjuna about the nature of existence; the Srimad-Bhagavatam describes how the self-recognition in the universal egg of the god-creator himself occurred, - he realizes who he is, why he appeared, and what his appearance in the world will lead to, which means he must create life in the universe and provide all created beings with lessons on the path of evolutionary ascent, after which he begins to create and create worlds, gods, all living beings...
It should be noted that in the Vedas we do not find the name of Brahma, however, there is a description of his prototype, Prajapati. For Brahma only in the post-Vedic period in the Puranas becomes one of the leading gods of the Vedic pantheon within the Trimurti, the triune deity that combines the three aspects of the single divine essence of the Supreme God, filling the entire universe with his energy. In this triad, Brahma is the creator. Our whole world exists during one day of Brahma, after which the night begins, a time of rest, of no activity, pralaya, and after that he resumes his creation. This is how Brahma's 100 years of life, "Mahakalpa," continue, at the end of which comes "Mahapralaya.
The Rigveda describes Hiranyagarbha, which is the original cause of the created universe. However in the Veda hymns the original creator of the universe is the god Indra who divided the sky and the earth, begat the Sun and freed the waters of the world from Vritra who chained them. Indra is the god of heaven. On Mount Meru there is Indra's paradise, also known as the heavenly Swarga. We know that Svarog paved the way for the Sun across the sky; in the Veda hymns we also find a mention that the supreme sky god Indra "rolled Surya's wheel" across the sky. Subsequently, in the post-Vedic period, in puranic literature various vices and evil deeds were ascribed to Indra, although he was one of the supreme gods revered in the ancient Vedas.
In the Vedas also sung hymns to another god, who as well as Indra, is called the Almighty - Varuna, revered as the god of the world's waters, who established the laws of justice. Here one can find etymological similarities in the names "VARUNA" and "SVARog", which can be traced to the common root "var7". Varuna also performs the functions of creating the world and maintaining world order in the universe, he raises the sun in the heavens, to which he paves the way, in order to ensure the change of days and nights.
The shapes of the amulet
The classical star form is the Svarog Square. With a slight modification of the lines, the amulet transforms into the Star of Lada. Circle, rhombus, included in the ornament, associated with the home, kept by a woman. A woman's version of the symbol was used to bring harmony, balance, pacify anger, knowledge of wisdom.
A star of Lada, related to Kvadrat Svarog and revered by others as his form, helps an unmarried woman find a spouse, and to find the other half to comprehend the happiness of women. The symbol protects the family from trouble, gives personal protection, stabilizes personal life. Svarog square, which has a spouse, symbolizes the divine forge, protects the entire home and family, takes care of the owner in war. Concluded in the power strengthens, unites relatives. The owner of the amulet gains the wisdom of the ancestors, feels the divine support, gets confidence in his abilities, builds military, craft skills, becomes more industrious and wise.
Svarog's square is related to the Star of Lada.
The name of the god Svarog. Meaning
In Sanskrit there is a word similar etymologically to the name "Svarog."
, which means '
. So it is, Svarog is the god Almighty and autocrat over the whole world. The etymological similarity with the concept of Ishvara is also obvious: icvara, which has the meaning of 'god', 'omnipotent', 'ruler'. The root svar (svar-ga), which is translated from Sanskrit as 'heaven', 'light', underlies the name of the all-god, who is the personification of the boundless heavens. The heavens are personified by the god Svarog, which are essentially synonymous with
. This is Indra's paradise that rises atop Mount Meru, one of the seven worlds where the souls of the righteous go.
By the way, the word "svarganit12 ", etymologically related to the name of the god-creator of the universe, originally meant "to create", but the true meaning of the word later was deliberately distorted.
Slavic god Svarog. The first creations of Svarog's Forge
God Svarog lifted Svarog heavenly, but strengthened it above the earthly firmament, paved the way to the radiant sun, through which majestically passed Surya luminescent in his chariot, and the change of days and nights established in our world. Thus Svarog created majestic Swarga. Mother Earth, nurse, Svarog from the depths of the ocean primordial lifted - on the mountains of Ripae he found a white-combustible stone Alatyr and threw into the blue sea, it foamed and showed land and dry from the depths of their bottomless. However, once again disappeared in the depths of the universe earth created, only at the command of the god Rod-creator of the original birds-goals brought a piece of land from which Svarog and made Svarog mother earth. And life was born on earth, and the World Oak, connecting the three worlds, grew up to the most pure Svarga, the crown rising to the space beyond. Since then, holds a powerful force possessing a serpent Yusha solid earth. Thus began the first creation in the universe...
Svarog, who with fierce heat forges the creations of the earthly and heavenly, created the diversity of life in our universe and filled our world with life.
The majestic divine alliance of Svarog and Lada enriched the world by appearance of the light gods, Svarozhich, from sparks of the Highest fire, from Svarog's Forge they manifested. Svarog created the light gods by a blow of a hammer on Alatyr-stone. With this fire heavenly fire was born Dajbog sun-faced, Perun omnipotent, Fire God Semargle fiery flame, swift god of winds Stribog. May his father Svarog grant his children in the Forge of Heaven the shield of the sun Dazhbogov and the axe of thunder Perunov chained by him.

If the Star of Russia tattoo is intended for a protective function, the image must be applied on the invisible to others parts of the body, but necessarily closer to the head. An amulet will have no less powerful effect if the symbol is placed on the chest, closer to the heart.
The size of the tattoo affects the choice of placement. The small Star of Russia will look good on the wrist or neck of a man. Large symbolism, complete with stylized elements, most often placed on the shoulder, chest and shoulder blades. There are tattoos that occupy half of the back of the owner.
Compositions with gods, artisans, warriors, require large placement area, so the inner side of the forearm is suitable for them, and sometimes the tattoo extends to the entire hand from hand to shoulder. Sometimes the Square of Svarog tattoo can be found on the calves, but such placement has no protective value, and to a greater extent refers to the artistic tattoo.
Feasts in honor of the deity
There is not much information about the ancient cult of the smith-god. Therefore, it is unclear what exactly the memorable days were devoted to him by our distant ancestors, and in our days at pagan festivals people honor together with other gods without reference to the dates of the calendar. However, among modern Rodnovers custom to celebrate Svarog's day on November 14. During the holiday it is accepted to burn fires and wash with clean water, paying tribute to the fiery nature of the deity.
Deities associated with Svarog.
First of all Svarog is associated with the god-smith associated with forefather Rod, whose hypostasis is Svarog. He himself is the father of four deities born by a blow of a hammer - Perun, Dazhbog, Stribog, Semarglu. There is also an alternative version of the genealogy, where the figure of his wife, the goddess Lada, appears. Perun was born to the couple; his sisters were Lelya, Zhiva and Morena, responsible for spring, summer and winter respectively, and his brothers were Lel and Polel, in turn patronizing passionate love and mature family relationships.
Whom does the goddess patronize?
In the pagan pantheon of any nation each deity or spirit has its own specialization. Warriors and princes made sacrifices to Perun, the farmer honored Veles, and women asked Mokoshi for the safe outcome of childbirth.
Svarog also helps blacksmiths, artisans and all those involved in manual labor. But there is also a broader understanding of him as a patron-god of industrious and creative people in general, who work hard and persistently to create the world. According to modern pagan natives, he also patronizes those who have chosen the path of professional sports, especially in the field of weightlifting and martial arts. A man of action, active, responsible and dedicated to his vocation will find support from this deity.
