You will remind her that all who enter here must devote themselves to a life of Service. This too, I suppose, is what Clemens Alexandrinus means when he says, "that the mysteries were especially performed by night, thus signifying that the compression [i.

    She has been selected as your representative. The Rigvedic hymns are dedicated to various deities, chief of whom are Indraa heroic god praised for having slain his enemy Vrtra ; Agnithe sacrificial fire; and Somathe sacred potion or the plant it is made from. Presuming, therefore, that such a pursuit must be a great advantage to the present undertaking, and feeling the most sovereign contempt for the sordid drudgery of venal composition, he desires no other reward, if he has succeeded, than the praise of the liberal; and no other defence, if he has failed, than the decision of the candid and discerning few. In the next place, that the following Hymns were written by Orpheus and that they were used in the Eleusinian Mysteries, will, I think, be evident, from the following arguments, to the intelligent reader. Sister of Immortality rises. If this signification therefore of the word is adopted, Orpheus lived either seventy-seven or sixty-three years, the latter of which, if we may believe astrologers, is a fatal period, and especially to great men, as it proved to be to Aristotle and Cicero.

    Hence his first production will be an order of Gods analogous to the intelligible order, and which is denominated supermundane. In this last portion occurs the well-known legend also found in the Shankhayana-sutra, but not in the Kaushitaki-brahmana of Shunahshepawhom his father Ajigarta sells and offers to slay, the recital of which formed part of the inauguration of kings. See more concerning this epithet in Gyrald. They likewise celebrate the Jupiter who is there, Osiris, the solar Pan, and others of which the books of theologists and theurgists are full; from all which it is evident, that each of the planets is truly said to be the leader of many Gods, who give completion to its peculiar circulation.

Some assert that he was prior to the Trojan war, and that he lived eleven, or as others say nine, generations. Ever since the first ray of light shone into the face of Woman, love has been a silken cord, strong as a chain of steel, binding creation together.

The Hymns of Orpheus

In the next place, that the following Hymns were written by Orpheus and that they were used in the Eleusinian Mysteries, will, I think, be evident, from the following arguments, to the intelligent reader.

The world is too prone to think, when we speak of the battles fought, that the manhood of the nation must form its first line of defense, but equally strong and true, has always been that line of defense formed by Womankind. Fables of this kind, therefore, are related of Orpheus no otherwise than of Bacchus, of whose mysteries he was the priest.

The Orphic theology, however, concerning the intelligible Gods, or the highest order of divinities, is, as we are informed by Damascius, as follows: "Time [as we have already observed] is symbolically said to be the one principle of the universe; but ether and chaos [called by Plato, in the Philebus, bound and infinity] are celebrated as the two principles immediately posterior to this one.

Will you try to make your life one of service? The splendid Stygian pool, and placid Gods beside, And daemons good and bad that o'er mankind preside; Illustrious Providence, the noble train Of daemon forms, who fill th'etherial plain; Or live in air, in water, earth, or fire, Or deep beneath the solid ground retire.

But it appears to me that Hesiod, when he asserts that Chaos was first generated, signifies by Chaos the incomprehensible and perfectly united nature of that which is intelligible: but that he produces Earth the first from thence, as a certain principle of the whole procession of the Gods.

The Orphic Hymns are a set of pre-classical poetic compositions, attributed to the culture hero Orpheus, himself the subject of a renowned myth.

Even the plan of the Infinite One, although possessing all power and all authority, involves the individual in whom we may have absolute trust and confidence.
