The Surya God turned his face to Athens

Monastiraki-Thision  in the back you can see the Acropolis


After a" monsoon " Friday, today the Sun was up again and radiant to the Athenian faces..I couldn't resist of a walk downtown Athens, walking under the rock of Acropolis and seeing all these people that despite of the anxiety of a non secure future they are still smiling back to the sun. Me also among them.
The Sun always has been a great symbol throughout cultures and myths.
The Greek alphabet as it is recite is a cosmogony pray to the Sun! I didn't know it and i only discover this 2 years ago.  
  
ΑΛΦΑ - ΒΗΤΑ - ΓΑΜΑ - ΔΕΛΤΑ - ΕΨΙΛΟΝ - ΣΤΙΓΜΑ* - ΖΗΤΑ - ΗΤΑ - ΘΗΤΑ - ΙΩΤΑ - ΚΑΠΠΑ - ΛΑΜΒΔΑ - ΜΙ - ΝΙ - ΞΙ - ΟΜΙΚΡΟΝ - ΠΙ - ΡΟ - ΣΙΓΜΑ - ΤΑΥ - ΥΨΙΛΟΝ - ΦΙ - ΧΙ - ΨΙ - ΩΜΕΓΑ.

* is the sixth missing letter of the Greek alphabet , that we dont use it anymore.

the decode of the alphabet is giving this :

“ΑΛ ΦΑ, ΒΗ ΤΑ ΓΑ!

ΑΜΑ ΔΕ ΕΛ ΤΑ ΕΨ ΙΛΩΝ.

ΣΤΗ ΙΓΜΑ (ΙΝΑ) ΖΗ ΤΑ,

Η ΤΑ, ΘΗ ΤΑ ΙΩΤΑ

ΚΑΤΑ ΠΑΛΛΑΝ ΔΑ.

(ΙΝΑ) ΜΗ ΝΥΞ Η,

Ο ΜΙΚΡΟΝ (ΕΣΤΙ),

ΠΥΡΟΣ (ΔΕ) ΙΓΜΑ

ΤΑΦΗ ΕΨ ΙΛΩΝ,

ΦΥ(ΟΙ) ΨΥΧΗ,

Ο ΜΕΓΑ (ΕΣΤΙ)”.

a very quick free translation from ancient Greek  to English the above is

Al, the light come to Earth!
and you
El, shed your lights to the material that is burning.
May become an alloy ,
so all Self can live, be and stand to this throbbing Earth.
Don't let the night to conquer, that is the micron and endangering  this alloy to be lost into the turmoil of material, 
let the Soul to be developed that is the great and the most gracious of all! 
 
This is a pray in ancient Greek that creates in the same way like Sanskrit Vedic Mantras a tremendous  vibrant effect. It is like a mystic ringing of a bell right to the heart of our Souls...

The Vedic mantra known as Aditya Hridayam is a very powerful mantra associated with Aditya or Surya the Sun God.

The Aditya Hridayam begins with the war between Lord Rama and King Ravana. The Rishi Agastya teaches Lord Rama, who seems perplexed as well as worried at the time, how to recite this mysterious ancient Vedic mantra and describes the procedure of invoking the Cosmic strength of Suryanarayan Deva the illustrious Sun God in order to vanquish any forms of negative forces that may surround him in order to achieve victory over the enemies on the battlefield. Lord Rama was advised to chant this sacred mantra thrice and through the power and energy of this mantra, he was able to vanquish Ravana on the battlefield.
