The Book of Veles - planks D1, D2a, D2b, D3

As much as the authentically preserved Vedic basis in the Book of Veles is important, in the same manner are valuable the proto slavic embodiments in it, the incarnations of same gods with new characterstics derived from the same doctrinal basis, but this time bearing slavic names.

D1

  1. This Book of Veles we dedicate to god of ours who is our haven and strength
  2. In those times there was a man, gentle and courageous and they named him father of the slavs.
  3. That man had a wife and two daughters. He also had livestock and cows and a lot of sheep.
  4. He lived in the steppe and nowhere could he find husbands for his daughters, therefore he prayed
  5. to gods not to let his lineage die out so. And Daybog granted his prayer
  6. and gave him what he prayed for. And the ones living with us got married.
  7. We are obliged to believe since it is clear that god Veles brings offspring.
  8. We are obliged to our gods and therefore we praise them.
  9. Let our master be blessed now and always and for ever and ever.
  10. Said the magicians and left.
D2-a

  1. We pray and bow to the first Triglav and glorify him highly
  2. We praise Svarog, grandfather of gods who is proto father to all god´s creatures
  3. and creator of everything living, eternal spring flowing in the summer
  4. and everywhere, and in winter and never freezes. With his live water he waters us
  5. giving us life until we reach
  6. the blessed paradies pastures. To god Perun, the thunderer, the god of fights and battles we speak:
  7. “You make us alvie with constant turning of the wheel and lead us down the path
  8. of Prav through battles towards the Great Trizna. And let all the killed
  9. in fights – live eternally in Perun´s regiment.” We praise and honor hod Svetovid
  10. because he is the god of Prav and Yav and to him we sing the song since he is the light
  11. through which we see the world. We watch and exist in Yav, and from Nav
  12. he saves us and therefore we praise him singing. We sing and dance to him and appeal
  13. to our god to maintain constantly in light the Earth, the Sun and the stars.
  14. Praised be Svetovid, our god opening
  15. our hearts to confess our bad deeds
  16. and to turn us to the good. Let take us as children into embrace for it is said:
  17. “The created cannot be seen with a half mind”.
  18. Because the secret is great, since Svarog is simultaneously both Perun and Svetovid.
  19. There are two beeings in heavens, Belobog (White God) and Crnobog (Black God)
  20. and Svarog maintains and commands both of them
  21. After them come – Horos (Chors), Veles and Stribog and further, Visheny, Lely and Letitz.
D2-b

  1. Then come Radgost, Krishna and Kolyada, and after them Udrzec, Sivi Yar and Daybog
  2. They are followed by Beloyar, Lada, Kupala – Senich (Hay), Zhitnich (Wheat), Venich – Zrnich (Seed), Ovsenich (Oats), Prosich (Millet)
  3. Studich (Cold), Ledich (Ice) and Lyutich (Hot), the come Ptichich (Bird), Zverich (Beast) and Milich-Dozhdich (Dear Rain),
  4. Plodich (Fruits) and Jagodich-Pchelich (Strawberry and Bee). Irestich and Klenchich-Jezerkich (Maple wood Lake), Vetrich (Wind), Slomich (Breaking).
  5. Gribich, Lovich (Hunter), Rodich (Birth), Listvich (Leaf), Zvezdich (Star), Lipich (Linden tree) and Ribich-Brezich (Fish and Birch), Zelenich (Green)
  6. and here is already Smurgl-Ognyebog, furious and hot-tempered
  7. It is the essence of Triglav since all stem from him
  8. and return to him. And here is the beatiful Iriy
  9. and there the river Ra (Volga) flows seperating Svarga from Yav, while Chislobog
  10. counts down our days and tells god of his counting: when is the heavenly day
  11. and when is the night. He divides days into days of Yav which are days
  12. of god and night. Praised be
  13. Perun – Ognyebog, who sends arrows on the enemy and loayally leads on the path
  14. which is the honor and judgement of the soldiers. He – golden fleeced, generous and righteous.
  15. The dying are taken to Svarog´s groves by Perunitzza because because the solider is neither a Varangian nor a greek
  16. but of famous slavic lineage who meets his ancestors
  17. in Iriy with magnificient flowers, and trees and groves also.
  18. On the pastures of the heavenly Svarog wealth is different!
D3-b

[...]

  1. The bird flew to us, landed on a tree and began singing. Each
  2. of its feathers shone in another color. And the night turned to day as it sang
  3. of battles…
  4. We remember Perun, there rides a messenger on a white horse. He raises the sword up to the sky, cuts the clouds and thunders. And live water [Krynitsa] springs up to us that we drink
  5. because Svarog bestows the life spring on the earth.
  6. Veles bestowed knowledge on our ancestors to plough land, sow grass and reap wheat
  7. in fertile fields, to put sheaves into their homes and revere it as the father divine.
  8. “Praised be our fathers and mothers for teaching us to respect gods and showing us the way of Prav that we follow and singing we glorify the gods and we are the Slavs.

The Pantheon of the slavic gods is divided into triads; consequently it is related to the number three.

In order to understand Triglav, the top of the entire cluster of gods was occupied by Svarog, who made the first triad with Perun and Svetovit, after whom the tandem comes of: WhiteGod and Black God, and a new triad: Horos, Stribog and Veles. The constant fight between Chernobog and Byalobog was surveyed by Svarog from above, but from below, from outer the circle, they were watched by Horos (Chors), Stribog and Veles. In this way Veles is given a great role in maintaining balance and as a sign of it, two aspects: spiritual and material.

As a provider of wool and hemp, Veles points to his livestock and farming meaning.

(The eastern slavs, take oath to Perun and Volos, hiding Volos behind the christian saint Vasiliye, shepherd and martyr.)
