Indagahor

From Endofempires

Jump to: navigation, search

One of the oldest religions in human history. At the time of its original conception, Indagahor was a mystical faith, lacking gods, spirits, or any sort of supernatural trappings beyond an individual's search for Enlightenment. Over time, of course, it acquired more of the trappings of organized religion -- a priesthood, an extensive monastic structure, and state sponsorship. It is now the dominant religion of the eastern end of the known world, though recently it has begun to lose ground to the more evangelical religions of the west.

Thanks for taking the time to dsuiscs this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

[edit] Theology

The roots of Indagahor were quite simple. Following ancient tradition, every person meditated at dawn every second day. This meditation was continued until one found Iehor, or enlightenment. If one found Iehor one was ready to die, though, conveniently, suicide reversed enlightenment. Many who found Iehor therefore took up dangerous occupations, such as exploration or military service. There was no organised priesthood, however there were special places where meditation was acknowledged to be enhanced. Some of those who found Iehor spread word of how they achieved it.

Naturally, this ran into some problems later on.

The most pressing theological questions, of course, were centered around the idea of Enlightenment -- questions most eloquently voiced by Arasos. Enlightenment, he wrote around 460 SR, is a slippery thing. One may believe that he has found one essential truth or another, but in reality be grasping at the air, unaware that his own spiritual awakening was a false one, and that he will discover this in short order.

He then went on to question how one could even hold any faith in the idea of enlightenment at all – presumably one would have just as much confidence in a false enlightenment as one would in the truth. In the search for truth, he wrote, there is neither freedom from suffering nor enlightenment. Truth can lead us to pain, and it needn't eliminate ignorance; indeed it can live alongside ignorance. And yet the truth is a necessary precursor for enlightenment in most philosophies...

More pragmatically, pre-Arasos theologians continually questioned how the Opulensi cultural "obsession" with wealth fit into the idea of Enlightenment -- and therefore, whether the Opulensi as a people were doomed to darkness.
