Slavic Vedas (Russian: Славянские Веды), also known as the Slavic–Aryan Vedas (Russian: Славяно–Арийские Веды), are the ancient sacred texts that are said to have been passed down from generation to generation in Siberia, Russia.
Till the beginning years of the 21st century, only the first book of the Slavic Vedas was translated into Russian and published – "Santii Vedas of Perun" (Book of Knowledge and Wisdom of Perun).
Russian and Sanskrit
Sanskrit and Russian are two most strikingly similar languages of Indo–European language family. It is known that during some period in history, the speakers of the two languages lived close together and many parallels can be drawn in cultural and religious aspects. The resemblances are endless, and opinions of historians on who influenced whom are split.
Encyclopedia "Meet The Slavs" states about the Slavic God Perun, as follows:
- "Perun is the highest, most dominant god in Slavic mythology. Occupying a space akin to Zeus in Greek mythology, Perun is the god of the storms, thunder and lightning. Slavic god of thunder is considered a fearsome figure in terms of power, but like Zeus is also fatherly and is the head of the pantheon of gods in the mythology of the Slavs. Although Perun is the equivalent of Odin in Norse mythology, his appearance is more akin to Thor instead. Boasting a long, copper beard, Perun is a very muscular, rugged man who rides a chariot pulled by a goat buck and carries either a large axe or hammer depending upon the mythological stories that are told."
Slavic mythology and Indra
It has been claimed that Indra and Perun fought together against the enemies of Slavs and defeated them, leading the sons of Or (Aryans) into victory.
