Ancient Spiritual Practices of the Sun

Ancient Spiritual Practices of the Sun

Spiritual PracticesHere at The Spiritual Sun, we research and uncover the transformative practices once used in the ancient religion of the sun. But more than just uncover them, we put them into practice in our lives so we know they work and can benefit from them ourselves.

Reading about spiritual things only gets you so far – eventually you get to the point where more reading just creates more intellectual ideas. Through practical exercises, however, we can gain spiritual knowledge and insight and ultimately walk the path of the spiritual sun.

Practices from the Ancient Religion of the Sun

Self-Observation — An Exercise from the MahabharataWe only cover practices from the ancient religion of the sun and those traditions which were influenced by it, that contain the wisdom of the path of the spiritual sun/Son. These practices help us to walk the spiritual path which corresponds to the path of the sun through the sky as marked by the solstices and equinoxes, and as shown by those teachers within these traditions (Jesus, Krishna, Osiris, etc.).

In their book The Path of the Spiritual Sun, authors Belsebuub and Angela Pritchard explain how this once global religion influenced ancient Egypt, Hinduism, the Druids, Jesus and the early Christians/Gnostics, among many others, and its practices passed down through them into the societies they taught in. On this website we focus on gathering these very practices so that they can become a resource for anyone looking to explore and experience the ancient Religion of the Sun.

Below you can see categories of practices of the religion of the sun listed by type and by tradition. Note this list is a work in progress; more will be added as research progresses over time.

Solstice and Equinox Ceremonies

One of the most special practices is attending a sacred solstice or equinox ceremony with other people. These mark the major stages of the path of the sun, as well as the major stages in the spiritual work.

Such celebrations have been around as long as humanity has existed, as evidenced by the thousands of sites around the world aligned to the path of the sun and stars. We aim to revive these ancient celebrations and make them a relevant part of people's lives today.
