The Religion of the Sun

The ancient religion of the sun was taken around the world following the great flood that ended the last ice age around 9,600BC by the legendary sages and civilizers recorded in world mythology. It was part of a divine mission to bring spiritual knowledge to indigenous peoples all over the world, which is why many ancient traditions contain remarkable similarities. It gave rise to the building of hundreds of sacred megalithic sites across the globe that are aligned to the solstice and equinox – and even to each other.
Its principles are imbued in the movements of the sun and stars, and in the natural world, and it’s the origin of many ancient wisdom traditions, some of which are still practiced today.
Since 2011 Belsebuub has used his own spiritual experience to piece together the practice of the Religion of the Sun, and his work is being used to revive it in the modern day.

Sakro Sawel means “sacred sun” in Proto-Indo-European. The YouTube

Searching Within By Belsebuub
Self-discovery is one of the most important and central aspects of the ancient Religion of the Sun, and it’s profound philosophy is found in its most sacred texts.
Belsebuub has been teaching this ancient and timeless form of self-knowledge since 1990, and has worked to explain it clearly in modern terms using his own extensive experience of it.
In 2001 he created a free course in self-discovery that was taken by tens of thousands of people and was the most popular course of its kind at the time. The material of this course has been adapted and released as his book in self-discovery, the current edition of which is titled Searching Within.
Belsebuub’s book, course, talks, articles, and videos on self-discovery can be found here.
