Yasna 26.4 and the fivefold division of being/becoming/existence

According to Avestá or the book of “unknown wisdom;” being/becoming/existence is divided into 5 dimensions: ahü, daäná, baóðá, urván and fra.vashí

ahü is the same as ás; the first element in the norse term æsir. ahü is the “GLOWING ENERGY,” the “PASSION,” the  “GOD-FORCE” that shapes the fabric of being and non-being. English “ash,” G…erman “asche,” or powdery remains of fire, EMBER, come from the same root.

daäná is related to Lithuanian “diena;” Old Church Slavic “dini,” Polish. “dzien,” Russian “den;” literally “to shine; to see, to see through.” Also compare with Old Viking rune dagaz, and Old.Norse.dagan; “the light of coming into being, day or dawn of a new beginning.”

Daäná is a divine VISION facing the spirit eternal, a source and inspirer of all things beautiful, luminous and superb. Daäná is the LIGHT of SIGHT, the VISION of the eternal, the timeless and not the shifting phenomena. It is the LIGHT and VISION that touches the world with the truth of spirit. Daäná is the creative gaze of ahúrá. The cosmos is guided and led by an INSIGHT, by a truth-wisdom. The seed of creation is shaped into birth and growth by a luminous, beautiful VISION or what we call in Mazdyasna; daäná. Daäná is the creative gaze of God, insight in man, and a truth-wisdom and/or LUMINOUS VISION in cosmos or creation.

baóðá is AWARENESS, AWAKENING, (See the third line of Yasna 30.2, second stanza.) Compare with Proto Indo European base bh(e)udh- “to be aware/awake,” Old.Church.Slavic. bljudo “to observe;” Lith. budeti “to be awake;” Old.Irish. buide “contentment, thanks” Sanskrit. buddhah “awakened, enlightened.”

urván comes from the root vr “to will, choose.” urván is the power to choose, desire, hold dear, love.” urván is the soul.

fra.vashí is about a dimension of words, novel ideas and archetypes that bring about creativity and growth. fra.vashí consists of 2 parts; fra+vashí. fra means “first, earliest, foremost.” The second part vashí is derived from vac,”word, voice, speech.” The origin of the idea can be found in the poetic gathas of the seer/prophet, where in the second line of Yasna 44.6 and the first lines of Yasna 45, 1-6; we encounter the phrase fra-vakhshyá; literally “speaking forth, the first word, primeval speech, foremost understanding.

vashí “word, voice,” by a beautiful word play is linked to “vakhsh,” to increase, grow. Compare with Old Norse vaxa, German wachsen, Gothic. wahsjan “to grow, increase”, Sanskrit.vaksayati “cause to grow, increase.” Also, vashí, by poetic word play is joined to “vash/var,” wish, will, aspiration.

The concept of fra.vashí is about the dynamic, original word/ideal at play.

    My name is %name&% and first of all I would
    like to say superb site. I had a little question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and open up your mind before writing. Lately I just can’t get my head clear so that I’m set to give attention to my ideas. I love writing once I get into it, but most of the time I feel as if I end up wasting the first ten to 15 minutes forcing myself to concentrate. Do you have any advice or methods?
