Sect. D., describing the year of Orion the deer-sun-god and the bow and arrow of the Great Bear (pp. 152-172), I have shown that in the Seven Tablets of Creation of the Euphrates Valley and the Creation Myth of the Shinto religion of Japan, the Great Bear bow and arrow is the weapon of the victorious ruler of Time, the creating and ordaining Will with which he slew each year-god at the end of his year, and his opponents, the supporters of the years, he in the successive national changes of year measurement erased from the national calendars.I have there shown that this heavenly bow and arrow constellation, which was in India that of the Vedic Krishanu, the footless archer, the drawer (karsh) of the bow, and of Rudra the storm-god, obtained this name from the creed of the national ritual of Scandinavia and Germany, Greece, Asia Minor, Syria, the people of the Euphrates Valley and India framed in the epoch of Orions year of three seasons. For in these countries the death of the deer-sun-god ended the last act of the annual drama which closed the year by depicting the deer-sun-god as slain by the heavenly arrow of the Great Bear constellation as he was violating the doe mother of the sun-god of the next year, born at his fathers death as Vastospati, the god the national fires put out at the end of each year and re-lighted at the beginning of the next.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
