The Ancient Ones …Anubis

Cultures:

All the religions have gods or lords of the dead. The reason that I chose Anubis for this one is the fact that so many people don’t truly understand who or what he is. This is something that we need to understand for many reasons. If we look at the different religions of the modern day we find there is normally one creature that is the main controller of the Underworld. I use the word Underworld instead of ‘hell’ for a good reason. To me they are very different things.

Anubis: is from the Ancient Egyptian religion which was a pantheon of Gods. The most common image that people see of Anubis is the hieroglyphs of the mummification of a pharaoh or the images of the ‘Opening of the Mouth’ ceremony when a person has passed.

So what else does Anubis do? It is seldom that the Gods do only one thing. Anubis is no different. Anubis helped with the embalming of the body, the ‘Opening of the Mouth’ so the soul can go to the afterlife and the most important one is (in my feelings) the waying of a person’s heart against the feather of Ma’at. She is the representation of ‘truth’ and the legend says that if a person’s heart is true then it will weigh the same as the feather.  (http://www.egyptianmyths.net/ ) If the scales balanced then the person was allowed into Field of Rushes. (http://australianmuseum.net.au/the-underworld-and-the-afterlife-in-ancient-egypt )

If the scales didn’t balance then the person had a slight problem …Ammut, the ‘Devourer’. The soul would be eaten by it.
