The Meaning and Concept of Arya
The word “arya” is probably one of most miscued, misunderstood and misinterpreted words in recent times. No one is sure how the word came into existence but after Hitler adapted the word to denote pure German race, the word became synonymous with racism. The truth is the word was used in ancient India to denote people of certain social background rather than a particular race.

Mithraism is Neoplatonic - R.P.
Since some people are telling what they think mithraism is, I decided to share my opinion about this religion, too.

This is celebrated at Yalda (an Indo-European cognate of Yule Day), one of the four most sacred Zoroastrian holidays still commemorated in Iran.

USHAO: Mazdakism (early iranian communism)

Repost: Towards an Integration of Mithras/Mithra/Mitra
Cumont, in describing a Mithraic fragment from Virunum that depicts the gigantomachy, describes it as "illustrating a Hellenized version of Ahura Mazda's struggle with demons." At first thought, we may be inclined to dismiss his description, because where we expect Zeus wielding his thunderbolt to be named, he has Ahura Mazda.
