Prologue

I am going to offer you two pills, take the Blue Pill and believe in whatever you want as the organized religion, Shiite Islam and the Christian Church have been preaching to you for millenniums, take the Red Pill and see the historical reality which has been hidden from you for millenniums. The choice is yours and the pills are in my hands, take a pick, Matrix style!

Sun, Fire and Water have special meanings in the Persian Philosophy. They are creators and essences of life; therefore, holy and sacred. They are very dear to the Persians. Ancient Persians had the highest respect for these elements and conducted various festivals to honor these elements. This is why:

Mitraists respect the Sun and their holy place is the Sun Temple
Zoroastrians respect the Fire and their holy place is the Fire Temple

I want to tell you the story of Mitra, Ancient Persian Sun Goddess. I want to tell you the tale of Mitra and Religion of Mitraism, a religion much older than Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity and Islam; a Goddess much older than Yahweh, Ahuramazda, Jehovah, Jesus, Holy Spirit and Allah who once worshiped all over the world.

Once upon a time, over 4000 years ago, Mitra and Mitraism entered the scene. It all started from Iran and the Persian Empire, but it spread throughout the Persian Empire, Greece, Roman Empire, India and all the way to China! Before all of the contemporary major religions, Mitra was the major Goddess and Mitraism was the major religion in the world.

Through the ages, in various countries and various eras, Mitra posed as the Sun Goddess, Angle, Divinity, Yazata, Spirit and so on. Mitra has many faces. After the decline of Mitraism, many religions continued to respect Mitra and borrowed from Mitraism.

Honor was the most important quality amongst the Mitraists. The Mitraists honored the Sun, Fire and Water. Mitraists honored Mitra the Sun Goddess, Persian Gods, their legends, elders and each other. Honor meant everything and without Honor, one was worthless. Ancient Persians lived a life of Honor.

Now that we are aware of these time periods, then we can move on to our main subject. When introducing various Persian Gods, Goddesses and other Mythical Figures, I will be naming certain periods, which they belong to. Persian Gods and Goddesses distribute along 8000 years of Iranian history from Pre Vedai Era all the way to The First Imperial Era and beyond. By understanding the above timetable, you are now armed with the weapon of knowing your historical time frames. Now we shall review other timelines:

Aryan Migrations Timeline

1st Wave: 10,000 BC - 2000 BC
Starting from about 10,000 BC the gradual migration of the Aryans from Siberia had started. By 2000 BC they were at the gates of Europe, Iran and then beyond.

2nd Wave: 1700 BC - 1300 BC
During this era various Aryan tribes have migrated from Baltics and north east Europe to Caucasia and then southern and eastern points to the Iranian Plateau.

3rd Wave: 850 BC - 650 BC
Latest wave of migration was from central Asia and the north east of Iranian plateau inward to the Iranian Plateau. They constructed the main tribes of Persia (Pars), Media (Mad) and Parthia (Part).

Mitraism and Zoroastrianism are Persian Aryan Heritage

Mitraism and Zoroastrianism philosophies are fruits of the Persian Aryan Heritage. It all started with the coming of Aryans to the Iranian Plateau on about 2000 BC. Eventually the Greater Iran, part by part grasped Mitraism and it become religion of the land.

Who is Aryan and Who is not?

Raciology is a science. Raciology is about study of races and the differences between them. The only people who deny Raciology are Fools and Liberals whom are both unscientific people. The failed liberal educational system in America, Europe and elsewhere have indoctrinated students to view the world and analyze the issues, not with logic, facts and methodology, yet with emotion, fantasy and mob mentality! Liberal educational system will not educate you, so do yourself a favor and self-educate yourselves by reading valid scientific, historical and philosophical facts online and offline such as IPC.

Not all Iranians are Aryan, but many Aryans are Iranian. Persian Empire was a massive empire. Persian Empire (until 1797) was consisting of various races which one of these races were Aryans. These Aryans of course were of various branches. Today’s Iran is a large country and it is still a mini empire of races packed in one country. One of these races are Aryans and indeed they come in different branches.

Some youth and students of history have the ever thriving and never-ending thirst for knowledge. IPC exists to educate these intelligent youth and students. These youth and students are not of the type who watches MTV, Shahs of Sunset, Hollywood Gossip, CNN; listens to Top 40 Lollypop music, Persian 6/8 dance music and reads Persian Tabloid Sites and New York Times! These youth and students are “Free Thinkers” and indeed “Critical Thinkers”. That is why they read IPC. This is why I always state that:

“Many are schooled, yet only a few are truly Educated!”

I always look for those few good women and good men.

If you are reading this book, then you must have brains and you must be of the above group. You are trying to unveil the curtains and the obscure vision which has provided for you by the Globalist Lies and the Liberal Educational System. Welcome to the light at the end of the tunnel. You are in the right place.

To study and comprehend that is who is Aryan and who is not, you must thoroughly study these in-depth books:

Mitraism Started from Persia and then went Global

Mitraism Philosophy AKA Mitraic Mysteries or Mitraic Religion was a rich Persian Doctrine based on Mystery, Astronomy, Science, Aryan Traditions, Persian Culture, Eccentric Rituals, Charismatic Preaching and Persian Poetic Literature.

The original philosophy of Mitraism primarily had formed in Iran which was the center of the Persian Empire, next it went Imperial wide through every corner of the Persian Empire which practically owned half of the known civilized world including but not limited to the Middle East, Caucasia in Europe, parts of central Asia and southern Asia. Mitraism then captured the complete Central Asia, India and it went all the way to China in the east. On the other side, Mitraism captured Greece, Rome, North Africa, Near East, Mesopotamia and it went all the way to England!

Original Mitraism is Persian; however, in each location, Mitraism absorbed the local flavors of the regions and this is why we have different blends of Mitraism in Rome, Greece, India and so on. Mitraism Philosophy and Doctrine is the same which is the original Persian Mitraism; yet, the different regional forms have added slight flavors and changes to the original form to make it more adaptable to the local regions. Ancient civilized cultures such as Persians, Romans, Greeks, Indians and Chinese had never destroyed the older philosophies and replaced them with their own; furthermore, they adapted all the goods in the older philosophies and implemented them into their own.

In the case of Mitraism, the global civilization accepted and cherished the original Persian Mitraism; morely, the various cultures, each have added their own flavors and rituals to it with slight variations from the original. Today, we refer to these variations as the Roman Mitraism, Greek Mitraism, Indian Mitraism and Chinese Mitraism. Have in mind that the Persian Mitraism was the original spark which started it all and made it global.

Mitraism started from Iran, spread throughout the Persian Empire and then to India, Greece and the Roman Empire, throughout Rome’s provinces in Asia such as Syria and Mesopotamia (Iraq) and Africa such as Carthage (Tunisia) and throughout the Europe such as Germany, France, and all the way to England. In Asia it spread to central Asia all the way to China.

At the time, majority of the known civilized world was divided in two. West, including Europe, Near East and North Africa belonged to the Roman Empire while East, including Middle East and Central Asia belonged to the Persian Empire. At a certain timeframe, Mitraism was the main religion of both global empires.

Evolution of Gods in Persia

Please comprehend that Persians had Multi Gods (Polly Thesis) during Vedai Era (2000 BC - 850 BC) and Pre-Avestan Era (850 BC - 728 BC). During "Early Vedai Era", when Iranian and Indian Aryans lived together, and then during "Late Vedai Era", when Iranian and Indian Aryans lived separate, in both periods, Iranians had a Polly Thesis System of Gods. Also, afterwards in Mitraism Period, during the Pre-Avestan Era, Iranians also had a Polly Thesis System of Gods. So, from the Ancient Civilizations (Pre Vedai) Era, all the way to and somewhat during The Kingdom Era, Iranians had a Polly Thesis System of Gods (Multi Gods). During these periods, Both Ahura Mazda and Ahreeman existed, yet they were only two major Gods amongst a number of other Gods and Goddesses. As it is documented in scriptures, during these periods, Zurvan was the father of Ahura Mazda and Ahreeman.


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Art

Suddenly during The Kingdom Era, when Zoroastrianism hit the screen, Zoroastrians primarily believed in two major forces of Ahura Mazda and Ahreeman. Rest of the Gods became less important and somewhat vanished! Once Zoroastrianism switched from a philosophy to a major religion of Iranians, eventually Zoroastrians only recognized the two forces of Ahura Mazda and Ahreeman. The rest of the Gods were only cherished by non-Zoroastrians. Later on, Zoroastrians started to believe in Mono Thesis and the one and only God, Ahura Mazda.


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Modern Art Closeup

The original philosophy of Zarathustra emphasized on Two Faces or Two Sides (Ahura Mazda and Ahreeman) of the same God; however, later on, Mobeds and Hirbeds (Zoroastrian Priests) had changed the original Zoroastrian Doctrine in to the belief in one God as Ahura Mazda with his Arch Evil Enemy Ahreeman!

So, in a way Ahura Mazda had existed way before The Kingdom Era and Avestan Era, yet during this period, he became The Major God. On the contrary, except a specific period (Ashkanid Period) during The First Imperial Era (559 BC - 651 AD), Mitraism and worship of Mitra had faded away in Iran! In ancient times, Mithraism was a major religion and Mitra was a major Goddess. Mitraism was exported from Iran to Greece, Rome, India and Northern Territories, yet eventually by the rise of Zoroastrianism, The Mitraism philosophy had faded away. The only exception to this rule, were the centuries of Ashkanid (Arsacid) Empire. Ashkanids were more or less very keen on Mitraism, Mitra, Sun Goddess and Mehregan Festival (Festival of the Sun).

In Persian:
Mehr = Sun
Mehr Parasti = Sun Worship AKA Mitraism

Mitraism was Always Present in the Ancient Times

Mitraism was always present and alive in the ancient times. During certain periods, it was the major religion of the state in both Persian and Roman Empires. During other periods, it was adapted by the major religion of the state (Zoroastrianism) as a part of the doctrine, respected and even though Mitra was not the main God (Goddess), yet she was respected as a Yazata, Angel or a Divinity. During some periods, Mitraism was not the major religion but was still an important force amongst the believers.

Meaning of Mitra Sacrificing the Bull

In Mitraic Icons and Artifacts, we often see Mitra is sacrificing the Bull. One may question the meaning of this tradition. One may even state that Mitraism was a violent religion! Allow me to elaborate the symbolism and definition.

Mitra’s Sacred Bull

In ancient Persian Philosophies, Bull and Cow are sacred. The same goes with Vedic, Indian and other Indo-European ancient cultures. The Bull and Cow are noble animals who plow the farms, fertilize the land, aid humans with labor, feed them with milk and they are significant to the survival of humanity.


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Sacrificing the Bull Roman Statue

Many Faces of Mitra

Mitra has many faces such as the Sun Goddess, Yazata, Angel and Divinity. Mitra also appears and changes shape to various animals including Bull.

Mitra sacrificing the Bull has deep symbolic meanings:

Mitraic Symbolism of Sacrificing the Bull

Symbolic Meaning A
Mitra sacrificed the Bull to satisfy the heavens with this sacrifice as the respect to the glory of all Gods and Goddesses and thanking the Heavens for all the blessings for the humanity.

Symbolic Meaning B
Mitra sacrificed the Bull and shed his blood to fertilize and feed the Earth and then he rode his golden chariot with four white horses, flying higher and higher, riding it to the Heavens.

Symbolic Meaning C
Mitra has many faces and one of her faces is the Bull. In a way, Mitra the Sun Goddess sacrificed Mitra the Bull; therefore, Mitra sacrificed herself for the humanity and risen to the Heavens.

The Zoroastrian Sacred Cow vs. Allah!

The Zoroastrian Sacred Cow is also originated from the Mitraic Bull. The concept of Bull and Cow being sacred was borrowed by the Zoroastrianism from the Mitraism.

Cow is not only sacred to Hindus! There is also a Zoroastrian Sacred Cow! Why you ask? There is a logic behind it. The Sacred Cow of Zoroastrians feeds milk to the Aryans, labors their farms and assists them with their agriculture. Aren't those enough reasons to be sacred? Muhammad turned a Black Rock in the center of Ka'bbah (a totem) to Allah and made it a mono god! Arabo-Muslim around the world are worshiping this Rock between 3 (Shiite) to 5 (Sunni) times a day! Don't you think a Cow has more use and is more sacred than a useless Black Rock (Allah)? This is pure Persian logic and it makes sense.

Meaning of Crescent and Star Islamic Symbol

So, as you see, even our Cow worth much more than Arab's Allah!

Virgin Birth of Mitra by Anahita

Virgin birth of Mitra is a controversial issue in three ways:

I. Christians deny the historical resemblance of Mitra’s birth to Jesus.

II. Roman scholars mistakenly report that Mitra was born from a rock!

III. Some Zoroastrian scholars claim that Mitra’s Seed was formed from Ahuramazda or Zarathustra’s Spirit into the Virgin Mother Anahita.

Many are mistakenly following the various false historical narratives and misunderstandings which has been written online and offline. So, what is the real story?


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Resurrection (Not Birth) from the Rock
Romans mistakenly assume that Mitra was born from the Rock
Mitra was a Bi Gender Feminine Goddess

Mitra’s Birth, the Real Story

Now I will clarify this issue for all. Mitra is the Persian Sun Goddess; therefore, the original Persian version of Mitra’s Birth must be the true version of her birth.

Mitraic Doctrine explains that Mitra was born from the immaculate virgin mother Goddess of Water and Fertility Anahita. The Goddess Anahita grasped the Mitraic seed from Heavens. Anahita captured that seed from the heavens and planted it in her body, then she released it into the Sea water. Anahita kissed the Sea water (blessed it) and there, Mitra was born. So Mitraic Seed came from Heavens into the Anahita Entity, released to the Holy Water and Mitra was born from the Holy Water.

Mitraic Life

Mitra lived a great primary life. Mitra touched the soul of humanity. With the aid of her 12 Disciples (12 months of the year which Sun must pass through them), she had enlightened the humanity. Mitra’s most devoted Disciples were Cautes who carried his torch upward (Dawn) and Cautopates who carried his torch downward (Dusk), together, they made the Daily Mitraic Journey (rise and fall of the Sun) possible. Mitra established many teachings and done many good for the humanity. Notice the metaphoric meaning in all Mitraic actions which are based on Astronomy and Astrology. This is the reason that Mitra’s teachings are referred to as the “Mitraic Mysteries” because they are Mystic, Mysterious and Deeply Symbolic.

Mitraic Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension

Mitraic Mysteries explain that Mitra lived a great primary life. Afterwards, was crucified, resurrected and then ascended to heavens.

Crucifixion of Mitra

This part is extremely metaphorical, symbolical and philosophical, so patiently focus on the chain of logic and bear with me. Mitra was crucified metaphorically. As I stated earlier, Mitra had many faces and she appeared in many shapes. The legend of Mitra sacrificing the Bull is in a way, Mitra the Sun Goddess had sacrificed herself as Mitra the Holy Bull, for the sake of humanity. Metaphorically, Mitra could have a gluttonous life of comfort and luxury but she chose to help evolve the humanity spiritually and physically. She devoted her whole life aiding and educating humanity. She was humanities best friend. Mitra’s ultimate sacrifice was her crucifixion for humanity. Mitra died for humanity. The act of Crucifixion was literally a self-sacrifice as Mitra’s one face eliminated her other face and physical entity. This act was so devastating that Mitra’s physical body died but her soul survived. In this manner, Mitra gave her greatest gift, her life for humanity.


Resurrection of Mitra Artifact
Mitra rises from the Rock as her Second Coming on Earth

Resurrection of Mitra

Mitra died for 3 days and sorrow filled the Earth. Mass prayer and popular spontaneous spiritual energy by the great masses had empowered the Mitraic Soul to once more come to humanity’s aid via resurrection. Mitraic Spirit resurrected the Mitraic Body from a Rock. Mitra’s second coming on Earth was her resurrection and second birth form the Rock. This event is portrayed in various Roman artifacts. This event is the base of Roman Scholar’s historical mistake which is more of a historical misunderstanding. Roman Scholars believe that Mitra was born from a Rock. In a way they are correct because Mitra’s Resurrection was from a Rock; however, Mitra’s original birth was from the virgin birth by Anahita.


Ascension of Mitra to Heavens Painting
Mitra the Sun burns Mitra the Earthly Body on Water Top and evaporates her to star dusts returning to Heavens

Ascension of Mitra

Art last, Mitra was ready to depart to Heavens because she had managed to put the humanity on to the right path, the Mitraic Path. Time had come for Mitra’s Ascension to Heavens. Many faces of Mitra, again came to the picture when Mitra the Earthly Body walked on the water directly under the burning Mitra the Sun, so Mitra the Sun burned Mitra the Earthly Body and she become pure energy, ascended to Heavens. Mitra evaporated from the water surface to the skies and heavens.

As you can see, everything about Mitra is symbolically metaphoric. Mitraic Mysteries are highly Mystic and deeply philosophical.


Mitra Persian Sun Goddess Sun Disk

Why Christian, Roman and Some Zoroastrian Scholars are Wrong?

Now you comprehend on why Christian, Roman and Some Zoroastrian Scholars are all wrong, simply because the Mitraic Mysteries elaborates that:

I. Christians deny the historical resemblance of Mitra’s birth to Jesus.
Rebuttal: Mitra was born a virgin birth from Anahita the Immaculate Virgin Goddess. Mitra was born on December 25th.

II. Roman scholars mistakenly report that Mitra was born from a rock!
Rebuttal: Mitra was not born from the Rock but she was Resurrected from the Rock. Her original birth was a virgin birth on the Holy Water.

III. Some Zoroastrian scholars claim that Mitra’s Seed was formed from Ahuramazda or Zarathustra’s Spirit into the Virgin Mother Anahita.
Rebuttal: Mitra’s seed came from Heavens, not from Ahuramazda or Zarathustra because Mitra and Anahita were both succeeded by Ahuramazda and Zarathustra! The timeline of Mitra and Anahita is much older than Ahuramazda and Zarathustra. In other words, Ahuramazda and Zarathustra were not existed when Mitra was born.

Now you are absolutely clear on the Mitraic historical errors and timeline errors committed by Christian, Roman and Some Zoroastrian Scholars.

Devolution of Gender in Persia

Multi Genderism was a norm in Ancient Persia. Multi Genderism and Various Verity of Genders, were a fact of life since The Ancient Civilizations (Pre Vedai) Era (6000 BC - 2000 BC). As I have stated before, in ancient times, Iranians did not have the present moral taboos! In Iranian society, had existed: Male, Female, Both Female and Male (Bi Gender), Neither Female nor Male (Neuter), Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Transvestite and various other types of Gender Identities.

So were the Gods and Goddesses. We had:

Male Masculine Gods (Ahreeman)
Female Feminine Goddesses (Anahita)
Bi Gender Goddesses (Mitra)
Neuter Gods (Zurvan)
Male Feminine Gods (Indira)
Female Masculine Goddesses (Allatum)

etc.

Iranian Gods and Goddesses were a representation of the Non-Gender Bias Iranian Society. There was no Gender Discrimination in Iran. Gender was a none-issue. Iranians were free of Gender issues; furthermore, Iranians believed in endless variety of Gender Forms. Women were the most valuable in the Iranian society. Ancient Iranian society did not see the gender issue as Black and White, Male or Female! Iranians believed in freedom of All Genders, including Male, Female, In Between, Bi Gender, No Gender, Feminine, Masculine, Hetero, Homo, Transgender, Transvestite and various other forms. In ancient Iranian civilization, Aryans were living beyond the petty gender issues. Aryan means noble. Aryan Tribes were Noble Tribes.

Morality and Gender in Ancient Persia

Ancient Iranians saw morality as a state of mind, and not as a state of genitalia (Under Belly)! A person's state of soul and mentality was the determining factor for his morality and the person's gender and sexual preference had nothing to do with his level of morality. Ancient Iranians were beyond Gender issues.

Morality and Gender in Post Islamic Persia

Once Islam hit Iran, then everything became Black and White, Male or Female! Once Islam hit Iran, morality was determined by the condition of people's sexual organ and sexual orientation! Heterosexuality became the only allowed form of sex and lifestyle, while everything else became outlawed and taboo. This is how the enslavement of half the population (women) started. This is how people's sexual preference or nature, became a factor to measure their morality! This is how the Islamic "Dual Life" started to form (as we know it now). Islamic Clerics, themselves lead two lives: They preach Heterosexual Family Values on surface, while they openly believe in up to 4 permanent wives (Aqdi) and unlimited Temporary Wives (Siqeh) and Concubines (Female Slaves) for each man (Legal Islamic Prostitution)! But then again Majority of Islamic Clerics are also occupied with Homosexual activities with young religious students, in backrooms of the mosques, of course in hiding! This is Islam in a nutshell and this is how Islamic fake, superficial, baseless and corrupt system of values had entered the Iranian Culture and as the rest of the Islamic Doctrine, it has infected the Iranian Body!

Certain Persian Gods / Godesses'
common Indian, Greek and Roman Roots

Certain Persian Gods and Goddesses have common roots with Indian equivalents, because during the Vedai Era, Persian and Indian Aryans lived together. Also, certain Persian Gods and Goddesses have common roots with Greeks and Roman equivalents, simply because these entities originated from Iran; however, in later decades and centuries, Greeks and Romans adopted these beings from Iranians and they cherished and flourished them to very high standards.

Live Persian Miniatures

Persian lives are colorful Miniatures. The same as Persian Miniature Paintings, the Persian lives are beautiful and colorful miniatures. Persian lives are not about Shiite Islam mourning and crying for 12 Imams but they are about happiness, celebrations, poetry and cheers.

This effect is portrayed in every aspect of the Persian Culture such as the Persian Festivals. Mehregan Persian Festival of the Sun and the Nowruz Persian New Year are indeed two examples of this characteristic.
