The Armenian nation, having a strong and powerful self-awareness for thousands of years, has created a culture corresponding to its type, which is uniquely summarized in the sun-worshiping faith of the “Great Light” or of the “Sun” of the Armenian nation as an ideology. of apostolicity, Enlightenment, the word, Arianism and piety. In order to establish the hereditary transmission, sequence and interdependence of the old Armenian faith in relation to the new faith, Western Armenia Television carried out a historical, cultural and linguistic analysis.
The first analysis is devoted to the ideology of AR-AREVI.
Stone inscriptions with a history of more than 10,000 years testify to the Light and the Sun, to the curvature of man. The light opens every morning, when the sun rises every morning, it brings light and warmth, protects a person from the cold and many other dangerous phenomena coming from darkness and gloom. Even our ancestors knew that without sun and light, the earth would remain without nature and without life.
The sun passes through 12 constellations per year. In the same way, it shows the 12 months, the 4 seasons of the year, their mode of existence and their equal status in the universe.
In this image, the 12 constellations are called the meteorological period of the year, through which the sun passes during the course of a year.
Light and Sun had their own gods, or were considered gods themselves.
The Light and the Sun, or the celestial bodies, were given names, which were combinations of meaningful sounds or codes. In the 19th century, prominent European astronomers Olcott and Maunder accepted the well-founded opinion that the perception and names of the twelve constellations of the zodiac could only be given by people living up to 36 to 42 degrees, that is, i.e. in the Armenian highlands. Dividing the solar year into 12 months based on the constellations of the zodiac seems to be the idea of the same people. On the sundial, the day is divided into 12 parts, which mark the hours of day and night. In other words, the day lasted 24 hours. And, in fact, a day has 24 hours, according to the ancient Armenian calendar, where each hour has its own Armenian name.
The origin and spread of the cult of the god Ar. The Armenian highlands are one of the ancient cradles of world civilization. Here Armenians were formed as a nation very early, had a strong state and high culture. The fact that Armenians had an important place and role in Western Asia is evidenced by centuries-old traces of material culture, historical and mythological conversations and myths, geographical and personal names.
The Armenian people are the direct heirs of the tribe living in the Armenian Highlands, which has been the ancestor of the Indo-Europeans since time immemorial and has been living and creating in its cradle for thousands of years. In these beautiful and harsh highlands, the Armenian people have built magnificent monuments, buildings and cities, created traditions and conversations there. Here he also worshiped his first god, Ar-Ara, the powerful sun god.
In ancient times, each tribe had its own object of worship – god, and each god had its own name. In addition to many gods, the tribe had its main god.
Ancient historical evidence, linguistic, ethnographic and archaeological materials show that the ancient main god of the natives of the Armenian highlands, the Aryans, was the sun god Ar. The brightest and brightest of the heavenly luminaries is the sun, which gives light and warmth to man, brings harvest and good.
Our ancestors, worshiping the sun, attributed creative power to it, accepted it as a supernatural power that creates all good things, as a source of life, the beginning of everything. And it is natural that man “considers the Sun as a god, looks at it and adores it”. Spring and warm sun, which replaced the often very cold and long winter of the Armenian highlands, brought great joy to the people who were looking forward to the sun, spring and the awakening of nature, marking the arrival of spring with major celebrations (carnival, Trndez, Ascension). The sun also interests men because it dies and comes back to life every day. The death and disappearance of the sun is called sunset, and its resurrection is called sunrise. People have noticed that just as the sun dies and rises again, so the year dies (winter) and rises again after death (spring). Not remaining indifferent to this idea, man endowed his main god with the ability to die and resurrect. The god Ar was the god of dying and nascent nature, later acquiring the description of the deity of war and courage.
