The Triple Godhead

We can see the Triple Godhead in the trinity of Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, where Brahma represents creation, Vishnu represents preservation, and Shiva represents destruction. In Folkish Wodenism this would be Woden representing creation, Heimdall representing preservation, and Thunor representing destruction. Or at least this is one way of looking at this, since as within Hinduism the god-roles overlap considerably.

But as with the so-called 'Tripartite System' of the Indo-Europeans the three naturally implies a fourth, which suggests that spirit comes prior to manifestation into matter. This is also true of the runic systems since there are Three AEttir, and yet we have a Fourth AEttir within Folkish Wodenism, as if the spiritual world breaks forth into the material world through the fourth.

So, how does this change things with the Triple Godhead, since there has to be a fourth and a specific role for the fourth. Creation-preservation-destruction is a linear sequence unless we add a fourth - renewal. We can thus see now that the role of Wid-Ar has been omitted within Odinism which sees this as a future role, but within Folkish Wodenism we see Wid-Ar as having a role in our times -

Woden - Creation.

Hama/Heimdall - Preservation.

Thunor - Destruction.

Wid-Ar - Renewal or Recreation.

Woden, of course, is swallowed by the Fenris Wolf (Chaos or Technology); but his spirit is released when Wid-Ar rips open the Wolf's Jaws to allow him to escape. Thus Wid-Ar is the reborn Spirit of Woden, but resurrected in a new form as the young and virile Warrior-Hero. The archetype of the Hanged God has given way to the Crowned and Avenging Son of the Sun. Thus Wid-Ar appears every 26,000 years at the ending and beginning of a new Great Year Cycle. 


  1. Happy Yule from the langbard !!
    Christmas and the Swastika :
    The sun gives life to plants, whence it emits in the form of fire and under the action of air. Likewise, the sun keeps animals alive, either directly with its heat, or indirectly with the foods they absorb, the combustion of which is determined by the air they breathe. Thus the origin of the myth is captured at its earliest source. The sun is the father of fire; the fire is consubstantial and is generated by the breath of the air (spirit). It is the expression of the part and the action of each of these three elements - the sun, the fire and the air, personified in Savistri, Agni and Vayu - which constitutes the Vedic myth, ie the primitive Trinity of the Indians who, in Vedas books, presented to us under the veil of an allegory. Agni (fire) is the incarnated son of Savistri, the celestial father (the sun); he was conceived and generated by the virgin Maya and has for his terrestrial father Twasti, the carpenter (he who manufactures the Swastica).
     Swastica is the cross produced by the two woods, whose association produces fire; Maya is the cavity of the one of the two sticks that is called the mother, and is the personification of the generating power. Vayu is the spirit (the air, without which the fire can not be lit) by which Agni (the fire) was conceived in the womb of the Maya.
          In the Vedic rite every year was celebrated the birth of Agni (the fire) at the winter solstice (December 25), that is to say at the time that coincides with the annual renaissance of the Sun. This date was announced astronomically by the appearance of a star in the firmament. When the star reappeared, the priests announced the good news to the people and repeated the allegorical commemoration of the discovery of fire. The fire was then ignited by the consultation of Swastica. The first spark that came from the cavity called Maya, was called "the little child". The priests placed the little child on the straw that lit up. At its side was the cow that supplied the butter, and the donkey who brought the soma, a spirit liquor, which will serve to nourish it. In front of him is a priest with a fan that shakes to keep him alive. Later it is carried on branches stacked on the altar. There, a priest pours on him a sacred liquor, the witty soma. Another gives him anointing, spreading the butter on him. From this moment Agni takes the name of Unto (in Greek Cristnos, Christ). From the hearth so nourished rises the flame that in the midst of a cloud ascends to heaven, where the fire goes to reach the heavenly father who sent him for the health of the world.
    This commemoration of Agni's birth was accompanied by a ritual ceremony. The soma was the sacred liqueur among all the Aryan peoples. Agni resides in it, though invisible. It is the emblem of all liquid foods, while solid foods were represented by bread, made of flour and butter, nutrients and fuels in which Agni lives.
          The offering of bread and wine was presented to the sacred fire on the altar.
          The fire consumed them and raised them in steam towards the sky to bring them to the glorious body of the celestial father (the Sun). Agni thus becomes the mediator of the offering, the sacrificer who offers himself as a victim. The priests and the faithful each received a particle of the offer (ostia) and ate it as a food containing Agni.
          This ancient trinity, composed of the Sun (Savistri), the celestial father; of the Fire (Agni), son and incarnation of the Sun, and of the Spirit (Vayu), the breath of the air, remained the fundamental dogma of the religions of Aryan origin (251). The purpose of this myth was to preserve preciously, making it the object of a cult, a process that is probably already lost other times. These periodic ceremonies recalled the means of obtaining fire.

  2. That Agni offers himself as a sacrifice is important to us since Agni is Ingwe and this is the prime reason that the English accepted 'Christ' since he gave himself in sacrifice. It would have been very easy for the Judaeo-Christian church to substitute their 'Hanged God' for Ingwe. We can see this in the early Old English writings where 'Christ' is a 'hero' who hangs from a tree; thus 'Christ' and 'Woden' are also confounded in the 'anti-myth'. Angi and Ingwe are the 'Son of the Sun' as stated in the Vedic Myth. We can also imagine that the Swastika was used as a 'wheel' around a 'hub' and that the 'hub' would be the central point where the Need-Fire was kindled at the Yuletide. As the Fire-Wheel (Swastika) spins it creates friction at the centre, and Agni-Ingwe is thus born of the Friction-Fire at the centre of the Swastika. This, of course, is something that can be revived today.

  3. We wish you a happy 2018 full of victories!
    I'd like you to comment on this cosmology article.
    "nothing forbids thinking of the universe as the gigantic YGGDRASIL tree which sustains the world, born of a cosmic seed and from which, by budding, galaxies, stars, planetary systems and relative moons are continually created: from seed to root, from root to the trunk, from the trunk to the branches, from the branches to the leaves, from the leaves to the fruits.
