Greco-Roman Depiction of the Kemetic Netjer Auset ( Egyptian Goddess Isis)
☥ 𓊨𓏏𓁐 ☥
What a lot of people don’t know is that the Kemetic Netjer(goddess) Auset is one of the only goddesses to be taken by the Greeks and Romans and still keep her original aspects . The Greeks turned Bast a solar lioness child of Ra into a lunar domesticated cat goddess of beauty , fertility, home protection, etc. However when the Greeks entered Kemet( which they called Egypt)and saw Auset they recognized her as the Original Mother and called the Netjer Auset the Egyptian Goddess Isis . She was still worshipped by the Greeks and Romans and all over the world in some archetype. Many regions made her patron of sailors and she became so popular that some countries had to ban cults of Isis especially when Christianity came into play they converted people by calling her either idol worship, demon , or in some places the Virgin Mary .

Ancient Egyptians were typically buried in the ground: either directly in the earth (as was often the case for the everyday Egyptian), or in elaborate tombs. Either way, the deceased were buried with their personal belongings, so that they might have all that they needed in the afterlife. The burial ritual for all Egyptians involved a reading from the Book of the Dead, which was intended to help guide the spirit of the deceased to the Hall of Truth. There, the soul would be judged by the god Osiris, who weighed the deceased's heart against the white feather of truth: the Ma'at. If one's heart was lighter than the feather, your soul would be guided to the Field of Reeds: the paradise of the Egyptian afterlife. However, if the heart was heavier, it would be thrown on the ground to be eaten by the god Amenti, causing the soul to die an eternal death.

RAMSES II AS A CHILD
Dynasty XIX 1300 B.C.
The Louvre Museum, Paris
This representation of the Ramses II shows the King as a child with a nude torso.
The plait falling at one side of the shaved head is the typical ornament of a young Prince.
He also has a heavy pendant in the ear, which would be abandoned after puberty and finally the finger in the mouth imitates the attitude of the young god Horus.
Facing him is the name of the crowned Ramses II, clearly showing that he already is the enthroned sovereign.
Ramses II is well known for the length of his reign, the numerous temples he built and his military campaigns.
Ramses was the son of Seti I and was crowned Pharaoh in 1290 B.C. when he was 18 years old.
Ramses wife was chief Queen Nefertari.
Ramses died at the age of 85 after ruling Egypt for 67 years.
A Hymn of Praise to Osiris Un-Nefer, the great god who dwelleth in Abtu, the king of eternity, the lord of everlastingness, who traverseth millions of years in his existence. Thou art the eldest son of the womb of Nut. Thou was begotten by Keb, the Erpat. Thou art the lord of the Urrt Crown. Thou art he whose White Crown is lofty. Thou art the King (Ati) of gods [and] men. Thou hast gained possession of the sceptre of rule, and the whip, and the rank and dignity of thy divine fathers. Thy heart is expanded with joy, O thou who art in the kingdom of the dead. Thy son Horus is firmly placed on thy throne. Thou hast ascended thy throne as the Lord of Tetu, and as the Heq who dwelleth in Abydos. Thou makest the Two Lands to flourish through Truth-speaking, in the presence of him who is the Lord to the Uttermost Limit. Thou drawest on that which hath not yet come into being in thy name of "Ta-her-sta-nef." Thou governest the Two Lands by Maat in thy name of "Seker." Thy power is wide-spread, thou art he of whom the fear is great in thy name of "Usar" (or "Asar"). Thy existence endureth for an infinite number of double henti periods in thy name of "Un-Nefer." Homage to thee, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, and Prince of Princes. Thou hast ruled the Two Lands from the womb of the goddess Nut. Thou hast governed the Lands of Akert. Thy members are of silver-gold, thy head is of lapis-lazuli, and the crown of thy head is of turquoise. Thou art An of millions of years. Thy body is all pervading, O Beautiful Face in Ta-tchesert. Grant thou to me glory in heaven, and power upon earth, and truth-speaking in the Divine Underworld, and [the power to] sail down the river to Tetu in the form of a living Ba-soul, and [the power to] sail up the river to Abydos in the form of a Benu bird, and [the power to] pass in through and to pass out from, without obstruction, the doors of the lords of the Tuat. Let there be given unto me bread-cakes in the House of Refreshing, and sepulchral offerings of cakes and ale, and propitiatory offerings in Anu, and a permanent homestead in Sekhet-Aaru, with wheat and barley therein- to the Double of the Osiris, the scribe Ani.
