About the author

Vida is of Baltic descent, and she is fascinated by the remnants of the Religion of the Sun that are found in her Lithuanian roots, many of which are still prevalent in Lithuanian culture today. She explores ancient sacred sites and pores over ancient texts, with the hope of bringing back the relevance of the Religion of the Sun to those interested in spirituality today.


  • I think this is a fantastic interview especially for a beginner to get a really good understanding in a short time about the Religion of the Sun and its history – the pace is good, and you can sense what a great effort Lara makes to give objective, in-depth and yet simple and easy to understand answers to Jennifer’s questions. They both give their full presence to this interview, which is wonderful. I found myself learning new things or internalizing known concepts and information as I was listening as well. Thanks Vida!

  • This was a really good interview, thanks for sharing. One thing I thought was interesting was the point about sacred sites not being only something that people could make and use successfully in the past, but rather something that we can appreciate today and also, that people can make today, especially incorporating elements that illustrate cosmic principles related to the sun’s journey through the year. It makes this knowledge so alive and accessible, knowing you can tap into it in the same way, rather than something that belonged to another time or place.

  • Hi Vida,

    Thank you for posting this great interview. I really enjoyed the calm way that Lara explains the various aspects of the Religion of the Sun and the very inquisitive way that Jennifer asks the questions. This is a great source to deepen the knowledge about the Spiritual side of the Sun.

  • I was really happy to see this interview; it was uplifting to hear such a profound topic being discussed by two women who were calm and respectful to each other (not like some of the aggressive debates or sensationalized presentation you get a lot of nowadays), and it’s also great to see Lara’s work finding new mediums for its promotion – I’m sure there are many people (relatively speaking!) out there who are open to hearing this alternative view on history and are able to connect it to a timeless spiritual practice.

  • Thanks for reposting this here Vida, its a great, warm, and informative interview about the basics of the religion of the Sun, as well as its founders.

  • This is such an informative interview. The rapport between Lara and Jennifer really comes across. I like the way Jennifer puts some good questions to Lara and then gives her time to explain new and very complex concepts in an understandable way. Lara’s knowledge of the subject really comes across and Jennifer’s enthusiasm to learn gradually builds throughout the interview.

    The historical aspect of synthesizing the core spiritual principles of diverse and seemingly separate cultures across the globe is eye-opening in itself, but Lara’s closing comment on the value of bringing the practices of the ancient Religion of the Sun into our modern daily lives, in order to experience the ancient wisdom that some of ancestors touched upon, is an inspiring encouragement.

    Thanks for sharing the video Vida.
