“Sumerian god of lightning, Ramman is also known under the name of Adad or Hadad. Ramman means the Thunderer, to approach the Aramaic Rimmon, the other name of Arabic Hadad. Many researchers first took Ramman for another Assyrian-Babylonian god” (source) before correcting the error and to assimilate the god Hadad. This god of thunder has been revered throughout the Middle East, to Egypt and Ethiopia.
“When Enki distributed the destinies, he made Ramman the inspector of the cosmos. In a litany he is called a hundred times “thou great radiating bull, thy name is paradise.” The bull is a solar animal, we immediately think of another god of thunder, worshiped in the same corner, the god Baal, Jehovah’s rival in the episode of Moses at Sinai. Bull, sun, should we consider this a primitive version of Sol Invictus? I do … “He is also called Son of An, Lord of Karkara, twin brother of Enki, Lord of abundance, Lord who rides the storm, Celestial Lion.” (source)wikipedia
Yes, and after that, I really do consider. Son of An or Anu, the Sumerian god of gods. Ramman is Hyperborean as Cuchulainn, such as Lugh and … Rama.
Rama, Ramman … Those who know me took the point already. Rama is horned, his totem is Aries-Ram. Ramman is horned, his totem is Taurus-Bull. Taurus is the astrological era before Aries … In the language of the origins, Ahn is the ancestor, the old one. Hence Ram Ahn could mean the ancestor of Ram.
It is true that we find a god of thunder in all mythologies. And most often it is a horned god. You may go around the earth, scrutinize the myths, gather legends and tales, soak up some amazing features that make the flavor and uniqueness of a culture, you will always meet a god of thunder and lightning.
Why this ? The accepted view attributed the universality of the god of thunder to polytheism of primitive cultures. This implies that wild people are so very basic, very simpletons, necessarily they are afraid of lightning, which makes lots of light and lots of noise. Such is the accepted view of ordinary racism in western university.
Be sure I won’t take it for granted. Once again, the truth is out. In the Indo-European cultures, the god of thunder is often the king of the gods, such as Indra in Hinduism, Zeus in Greek mythology, Perun in the old Slavic religion, or Shango in the Yoruba religion or religions of the African diaspora, the Santeria type, Voodoo, Macumba, Candomble. Or he is the heir to the king of the gods, like Thor, son of Odin in Norse mythology, or like Tlaloc, the Aztec god of lightning, cousin (or brother?) of the chief god Quetzalcoatl.
The most stupid jackass can make the difference between natural lightning and the superior powers of a weapon. All these gods of thunder, probably fewer as it sounds because they had several names each, all these gods of thunder possessed terrifying arms and weapons, rays launchers, laser swords as Jeddi Knights. If you do not believe me, see the chapter on the arsenal of the former gods.
Obviously, the most powerful of the gods was the one who had the ultimate weapon: the death ray. Moreover, the former gods had techniques to attract and use lightning. It is clear that the universality of the god of lightning as the main god has nothing to do with the pseudo debility of polytheist natives.
It’s time to lose the ridiculous shell of contempt that cuts us westerners from really meet, sincerely exchange and humbly learn from the rest of the world. The antidote is here in these pages. Cheer up and hold on.
In Greek mythology, the Champs-Elysées are considered the resting place of the souls of heroes and the righteous. It is interesting to note that the word “Elysium” comes from the Greek enelysion, originally meaning a person struck by lightning.
source and list of the Gods of Thunder
Adad is also a Syrian god. Healed of his leprosy, Naaman, head of the Syrian army, knew that Jehovah was the true God, but declared himself concerned about having to accompany the king of Syria at Rimmon Temple and bow down to it along with the King before the idol of Rimmon. Indeed, the king leaned on the arm of Naaman. (source)2K 5:15-18.
We see that belief in Jehovah did not stop worshiping Adad, probably because Adad was best healer that Army Gen. Jehovah Sabaoth. All these people actually existed in flesh and blood, and they were jealous. The gods are just like other people. Remember that the Bible calls this period “the time when gods walked among men.”
Rimmon is generally identified Ramman (meaning “the roaring one, the thundering one”), god known he was worshiped in Assyria and Babylonia. Some have speculated that the worship of Rimmon (Ramman) have been exported from Assyria to the O. by some of the tribes who settled around Damascus late. A number of experts believe that Rimmon (Ramman) is a title of the god of storm Hadad (Adad). The fact that Tabrimmon or Ben-Hadad were names of Syrian kings suggests that Hadad Rimmon and were one as these kings were probably the name or title of their chief god. (source)1K 15:18.
Lightning was associated with abundant harvests, such as storm water, but it had also a negative, destructive, terrifying aspect, say the experts. I take issue. Lightning was primarily an instrument of enlightenment. If the storm enriched rain water with lightning nitrates, which fatten vegetables, divine lightning was also the lethal weapon, the ray launcher which disperses the enemy.
Therefore Ramman is a god of war, as Yahweh / Jehovah. “For the Assyrians, the latter was primarily a god of storm and thunder. Considered one who gives the rain and so that provides water for wells and fields, Ramman is still associated primarily with the devastating effects of rain and lightning. On the Assyrian monuments, Ramman is repeatedly represented in the god of war. He was also regarded as such in Babylonia, where Ramman, Sin the moon-god and Shamash the sun-god made up one of the many triads.” (source)
In any case, the worship of Roman is so powerful and so extensive that there is still currently devotional practices in respect to India. “Every year in late April, the twin villages of Saloor-Dungra in the state of Uttarakhand (northern India) are under the sign of Ramman religious festival in honor of the patron god Bhumiyal Devta, the local deity whose temple houses most of the festivities.
This event consists of a complex ritual: reciting a version of the epic of Rama and various legends, and interpretation of songs and masked dances. This festival is organized by villagers, each caste and occupation with a different purpose: for example, young people and seniors are artists, Brahmins lead prayers and perform rituals, and Bhandaris – Local representatives of the caste Kshatriya – have the exclusive right to one of the most sacred masks, one of the half-human deity, half-lion Narasimha. The family hosting Bhumiyal Devta during the year must meet a strict daily routine.
Combining theater, music, pageants, oral traditional stories and writings Ramman is a multifaceted cultural event that reflects green design, spiritual and social community, traces its founding myths and strengthens self-esteem. In order to ensure its viability in the future, the community priorities for strengthening its transmission and recognition beyond the geographical area of his practice. “(Source)
The cult is alive, much alive and well proselyte. Hare Ramman!
