Shiva, Pan, the Green Man & the Horned God

Is there a connection to Shiva and Pan, the Green Man and the Horned God of antiquity?

Throughout the world and throughout history, we find certain archetypal gods of nature have served as the basis for fire worship and worship of the Earth itself. These gods of nature take many forms, but have underlying similarities, of which two of the most well-known are Shiva of traditional Hinduism and Pan of ancient Greek culture. A third god, the Green Man, is a common figure in European culture and folklore, while a fourth, the Horned God associated with European witchcraft is closely related to both Pan and the Green Man. Let us examine the parallels between these 4 gods, and argues that each embodies the same core values and principles, but manifests them in different ways.

Shiva, Pan, the Green Man & the Horned God

Shiva is a major deity in Hinduism, and is most commonly associated with destruction and transformation. He is known by many other names, such as Mahadeva (“Great God”), Maheshvara (“God of Destruction”), Sadashiva (“Eternal God”), and Rudra (“Roarer”). Shiva is commonly depicted as a fierce, wild and untamed figure, and is sometimes seen as a symbol of death, but also of resurrection and renewal.

Pan, who is known by many other names, is a Greek god of nature, the wild, shepherds, flocks, and hunting. Pan is often depicted with the hindquarters, horns, and ears of a goat and is often seen as a highly sexual figure. He has a long history as a god of fertility and is associated with the god Dionysus, who is associated with intoxication, erratic behaviour, and nature’s uncontrollable forces.

The Green Man is an ancient figure found in many European cultures and is often depicted with leaves or foliage sprouting from his body or face. He is usually considered an embodiment of the natural world and is often seen as the personification of the cycle of life, growth, death, and renewal found in nature.

The Horned God, who has many names and manifestations, is closely related to Pan, and like Pan and the Green Man, he is seen as a God of nature and fertility. He is commonly depicted with horns, as well as a beard and often with a club or other weapon. This figure is closely associated with European witchcraft, and has been called a “lord of the forest” and the personification of masculine power and strength.

Similarities Between the Gods

The four figures discussed above share a number of striking similarities. They are all closely associated with nature, particularly with wilderness and the cycles of life and death found in nature. They also share a close association with fertility and with the power of wild and possibly dangerous forces. All of them are seen as embodiments of masculine energy and strength, but also as symbols of renewal and transformation.

In addition, all of the figures are often seen as symbols of fire, and each has his own connection with that element. Shiva is often described as the god of fire, and the sign of his third eye is the symbol of the flame. Pan is often thought of as a god of fire, while the Green Man is a symbol of burning and rebirth, of which fire is an important part. Lastly, the Horned God is closely associated with bonfires and flame, and is a powerful symbol of the regenerative power of fire.

Shiva, Pan, the Green Man, and the Horned God – share many similarities. Each is a god of nature associated with fertility, regeneration, strength, and power. Furthermore, each is imbued with the element of fire, which is a powerful symbol of transformation, life and death. Despite their apparent differences, they can be seen as manifestations of a single, underlying idea: the timeless power of nature, and the forces of life and death that it contains.

Bel – Sun God of the Druids

Bel, the Horned God, the Green Man, Sun God of the Druids. He is the same Shiva Pashupati Lord of the Animals, Osiris the Green Dying and Resurrected Lord. He is also called Pan (Peter Pan), and Dionysus of the Greeks, and Murugan or Sanat Kumara of Sri Lanka and Ancient Mu or Lemuria. Also called Baal of the Canaanites and Israelites and Balaram of the Hindus. We get the festival of Beltane from Bel as well.

I recently learned that my family ancestry on my dad’s side “The Bell’s” goes way back to Scotland and the legendary enigmatic Druids themselves, who took the name Bell in devotion to their Deity Bel when having to adapt to (in threat of persecution and death) and create a syncretism with Christianity in what became the Celtic Coptic Church. ?????
