asatru and mushrooms?
    #4272480 - 06/08/05 05:42 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

just wondering if anyone knows of the link between mushrooms and the asatru (odenist) religion? i have been asatru for abut a year now and have just seen mention of mushrooms here and there but no one seems willing to write about them in detail. i have heard of a festival in Germany that involves shrooms and the asatru religion. My self being of German decent and wanting to get back to my roots both mentally and physically i feel that this is very important. so if anyone can help please do so!

i hear the vikings would consume the fly agaric mushroom
in order to make them go into thier terrifying "berzerker" state.
I know for a fact that Odin was suppost to be a shaman.

vikings did infact eat fly agaric mushrooms along with many others. The fly agaric however is mostly involved with "berzerking" I think which would have been out lawed soon after christianity started to take over (bastards)...I am not sure if there is any GOOD evidence on it..but personally I think that rune-wizards or runic wizards probably would have altered there state of mind if they could, it would make sense wouldn't it? rune-casting requires a meditative state of mind of course...

No it is not. I think it it dutch?

I have not seen all of it.. but to my understanding, atm. it is basically two men, talking about the connection 'of' shrooms, and religion.. (?) :P

"vikings did infact eat fly agaric mushrooms along with many others. The fly agaric however is mostly involved with "berzerking""

Actually tropanes were sometimes used in paste form. Usually the person just became unhinged without any help. They donned a shirt of bear skin and felt that they had shape shifted to bear form. Hence the name ber (bear) serk (shirt)...Berserk = bearshirt.

Just a bit curious about "berzerking." Why would a viking choose to berzerk?

pharmacratic inquisition [Re: psyka]
    #4744455 - 10/02/05 08:50 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

it's a cool movie which basically sets out to convince you that christeo-judaist religions are based upon entheogenic drugs (ie: spiritual drugs .. mushrooms) and celestial worship...

and that the current view of these religions is a total fuckup based upon real, provable, historical events that completely remolded them and literally 'defined' them in their (approximately) current state.

basically, in my opinin and words the undertone is: take mushrooms yourself and discover something that is and has been cloaked in taboos and kept secret from the majority of the population - at least in much of eurasia - for a long time.

It was a spiritual/mystical/honor bound thing. They used it to gain fame and remembrance. To the Norse a place in a heroic saga or song was the ultimate form of immortality. It was the ultimate expression of the Norse warrior's destructive power and fearlessness.
