I share this link. O! God! Save the fatherland.


This old Kurdish melody belongs to the fifties and sixties, which is one of the most beautiful and dignified Kurdish songs. The lyrics of this song are by the popular Kurdish poet Fayaq Bekas. He is the father of the great poet of Kurdistan, Sherko Bekas. And I will never forget his triumphant smile on my second and last meeting with him, and that moment is the greatest memory of the great Kurdish poet Shirko Bekas for me. Because he gave me that triumphant smile and look that I know what you are saying ... and that was what I was looking for and I got. The melody of this song is by Qader Dylan, he has recorded many songs on Radio Prague. But this is a recent performance by the great artist Anwar Qaradaaghi. I wish him good health. Homeland is an all-encompassing but definite concept. You can live in different lands and love them and do your best to develop those lands, but I mean where your roots are. In the Bible, Genesis deals with the roots of man and says that man was created in the east of AA-daan (Eden) and then had a mate and bore children and then humans were scattered around the world. This story became the basis of wisdom, philosophy, thought, culture, genealogy, linguistics, film, and literature, and dozens of philosophical schools were born from it.

A long time has passed since creation, and many calendar periods of the creation of the universe and man have passed, and the last of these is the period in which we live.

According to the Mithraic or Marutash calendar, the periods of creation are periods of seven thousand years. Marutash means the path of the Maad from the land of the serpent or creation in the south to the mountain in the north, which is the land of the crown of the sun, where human reaches the stage of decline or ascent. These 7,000-year-old periods of the Marutash calendar are manifested in four lands or elements of Areas of Creation: water, fire, earth, and air and every calendar is ruled by one of the Ized of the Maad. Maad means God's advocate in the creation of living beings on earth.

His assistant deities rule over seven planets and the sun:

1- Godarza- Hoshadara ruls on Tir, Kewandari: the sign of the golden arrow, Zanduj, Sndus,Jaani, Janosh, Jandok, Wejen, Washen, Tur-Washen, Shir-rej, Garruz, Galloz, Gallwakh, Kurruz, Turjaall ,Krriwa, Krrita, Shitabarz, Tush, Turra,Oshi-Daru,Hosha-daru, Mosha-daru, Godarz, Chngz, Zabil, Zawli, Shukhi Zabil, Zab, Shokh, Shokhi Zang, Maasidar, Moshadir, Mushatir, Mushashur, Mushaatur, ShawaZang, Zangana, Tawsang, Tawzang, Hoshang. Surija is Yam’s Taa or dual.

2- Khaatus or Venous, Khaatubara on the Aawzin: the sign of the golden bow and ZarrTush or ZarrnaKuta, ZarrnaTuta, Zarrna Taj, ZarrTush or Zoroastar.

3- Mardaan on Mars, Mariwaas, Maarduzja: the sign of the scythe and the furnace of underground fire, Marddaas, Aaseward, Aasamard,Haarbaziwa, Hallbaziwa, Saraashewa, Nuzi, Puzi, Putki, Mushki, Mutki, Gumutk, Guputk, Shfraii, Drawsh,Darwesh, Takhshiw, Bitakhsh, Bawtash, Bawtasha.

5- Daadash-raa ruls on Saturn or DaadashRaa, Barzalla, Barjolla, Zardoka, Zarduka, Gaapaall, Gaabaar, Yapaall,Paalla, Paallu, Barzila, Bardila, Bardina, Barzina, Sharzin, Kullozarr,Barzanjaa,Chartun, Kardun, Chatun, Barjun, Sarjun, Sargon.

6- Uto ruls on Sun or Or, Orto, Urto, Hoto, Hutaw,Hataaw, Khorto, Khor, Khwer, Hwer ,Hor

7- Zaamu ruls on Earth or, Ir.

God's advocate in matters of creation rules over the Zi or moon, and he is ruler or PaatZi in there. He is Swaar or ridder on the Go-Spi or white Cow so he is PaatGew or Gewpaat. He is ruler on Shorra Charkh(Solar System).

Shuruppaak Gaobara or rider-crown-gem is an ancient astronomical science. This science tells us that white or clear light when it shines at a certain angle on a drop of water decomposes into seven colors and forms a rainbow. This fire, which has a fiery-earth nature, affects and decomposes water-air droplets, and these seven colors have their own energies, and because man is part of creation, and is influenced by the energies in these seven-light colors, which are in the form of waves and particles and exist in nature.

The person or persons who have left this eternal knowledge for humanity had a very high level of knowledge because, in addition to this information, they tell us the secret of creation, but point out that the creation of man is not without consciousness and wisdom.

Zi-Du-Sudra-Shurup-Paak-Gew-Baara, it means" the knowledge of knowing the representative of God in the affairs of creation".

How he got to the land of the moon's eye, which is surrounded in the cow's eye in eight minutes and twenty seconds in awe of light, and from the top of the Shid-Tus(Golden crown of the white peacock)to the land of the Charkh, which is inside the land of the Gew-iw-ta(dark part of cow's eye).

The Shid-Tus is a Golden crown of Sun and White Peacock gim in The twin of Paradise (Taa-Ush), and the eternal life that shines on the twin of sunlight (Taa-Shid) and the material nature of the light of creation, which is a rainbow, over the land of the cow's eye. (Kosh= The Eye's Corner mountain to RawiShwen mountain). Rawishwin means Pari Shwin, which is the mine of Spinel mountain. The soil is glowing black and melts and turns white in the oven.

Based on Kurdish reincarnation or Gunaa-Tawn or rebirth, when a human being dies, his-her soul comes to this mountain and after three days he has traveled all three parts of the land of the wheel. His-Her existence is turned into yarn with a spindle and then dyed by dyers then tested in this place by Jolla, the Ized Daadash-Raa. He delivers the parts of the soul that are filled with man's actions, thoughts, and words to Bakhshar or the Ized Rasho so that he weighs them. He stands on top of a mountain of Bazayi or pity. It goes on a metaphysical bridge that runs from Mount Tir in the west to Shurupak in the east. Reaching the stair of Chatun, there is the TaajaBaan(a heavenly dog with a golden collar).

Ized Suri is standing there. He oversees the good speech and wise prayers of man. The good words of human beings are like honey, and he makes the hat of Ized Mit-Raa(The creation) the criterion of their sweetness and weighs them with this hat. This hat is like a honeycomb. Because beehives are pentagonal, they are a symbol of the sacred peacock's paw and the way to heaven. This honey, which is the manifestation of sweet speech, is the food of the way and it is called Twesha.

Man's good thoughts(Khrrat or wisdom) are measured on the mountain of Gewzanda by Ized Daadash-Raa in Gewzanda mountine.Gewzanga is a black stone that is the weight of measuring the deeds. Here is the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, and two white donkeys protect its roots underground and two deer protect its trunks and branches.

Ized Mitraa is owner of Gewzang. Ized Daadash-Raa is the protector of this black stone, which is the touchstone of human thoughts. Man's good thoughts are manifested like golden walnuts and weighed on the Ized Rasho's scales.

 Khu or human actions are measured by the Izad KlKawas by white Khuma on Tir mountain. There the Khuma testifies to the good deeds of man, everything man does appear like white buds on the branches of the heavenly Khum. This is called Baarkhum or product.

Finally, with the final approval of the Ized Maad (Mithra), the good man either ascend and goes to heaven or is thrown down to the valley of hell. I will write about this topic in this interview, as well as Alexandr's Gej in the land of the cow's eyes.

I wish my dear friend Dan all the best. God bless him and his country.
