Daily Deity #150 Durga and the Demon BuffaloWell guys, we've made it to the 150th Daily Deity and for such an event, we have a very famous mythological event from Hindu mythology: The creation of the goddess Durga and her battle against the demon Mahishasura.Daily Deity #150 Durga and the Demon Buffalo by mythgirl68
For the beginning of this story, we need to first talk about the asura, Rambha, because without him this story never would have happened. Rambha was the leader of the asuras, who are the group of beings that are in direct opposition to the devas, or gods of Hindu mythology, which often leads them to be considered demons. You know nothing is ever good when your stories basically begins with the king of demons.
Where things really went wrong is when Rambha was just walking around down on Earth and saw a buffalo. An apparently really pretty and female buffalo. Yeah, I'm sure you know where this is headed. You actually have to give Rambha a bit of credit though, at least he married the buffalo instead of just having a one night stand with her.
From their union came Mahisha (ful
Taak's Journal: Eighth Birthday Escapades4th of the 3d, 1831AKTaak's Journal: Eighth Birthday Escapades by Leonca
This will stand in for yesterday’s entry on account of my exhaustion upon coming home and also nothing of interest occurring today. For my eighth birthday Mother gave me a new John Smidley book, the one where he goes to the mountains to see the Troll villages, and Father’s present was a gun with adjustments to fit my hands better. Mother gave him The Look but she didn’t take it away.
Uncle Yerv and Aunt Zai and Travis came for dinner and then Father told me for their present I was going to have a Very Special Cultural Experience. Uncle Yerv said I was old enough to attend a Ghoul’s Meeting and I said only if I could bring my new gun, and Mother said not without more target practice. I knew it would be bad but nothing could have prepared me for such a display of madness.
Ghoul’s Meetings may take place anywhere that does not attract too much attention from humans or werewolves. This one was located some ways north of the branch
Daily Deity #147 Huginn and MuninnOdin, if nothing else, is a bit of an eccentric god. I mean, the guy rides an eight legged horse, consults the head of a long ago decapitated friend when faced with tough decisions, and thinks the best company is dead warriors who really like to party a little too hard. So maybe it shouldn't come as such a surprise when I say that Odin gets his news from two ravens.Daily Deity #147 Huginn and Muninn by mythgirl68
These guys are basically the right hand birds of Odin. Huginn and Muninn, each and every morning, fly down through Yggdrasil, the World Tree, and head down to Midgard. They fly around the Earth the, collecting the transpirings of the day and then back up to Asgard at the end of the day. Once back home, they take their respective spots on the shoulders of the All-Father and report the details of the day. Then they start this process all over again.
Now, you might be wondering how two little birds are able to do all that Odin requires of them. Ravens are some of the smartest birds in the world, but traveling around the whole
