Modern people work the land machines: plow, sow and harvest. At best. Now in Russia and Ukraine many lands remain "unclaimed."
In the past, people do not just worked the land to grow crops, but also respected, and revered as a goddess of the earth. They not only love their land, but also know how to stand up for her, and thought that it was better to die than be a slave to his own land. When ancient Russians went into battle, they took with them a handful of native land. If a fatal wound, they were put to her earth to heaven on their own God took them. When the soldiers returned from the war, they went to the Holy Mountain, and bowed to the four sides, dropping to the ground and kissing her. Magus (Priest) the rite of purification, for he knew that the murder committed by them, lead them to Nav (Hell), and in this state they could not return to their family.
Taking a holy oath, ancient Russian ate a pinch of land, if a man sworn, testified Earth, breaks, he had his land will not have.
The wise men were in charge of the places where the greatest force in the world, in which the power of The Human climbs, as well as where and what places are located, on which to build a temple on which the settlements, where graveyards, cemeteries create and cords to create.
People constantly strive to know ourselves and the world around him. By understanding the nature of some things or phenomena, it gives them a name. The ancients believed that the name and the image is embedded the essence of each manifestation, so the true names of things, animals, people and the gods — a great mystery. The true name of a thing is a knowledge of its structure, purpose, properties, appearance and other qualities, as every sound is a whole world, with the external appearance and internal nature. Typically, the outer essence is clear. For knowledge is the inner essence allowed only selected pure souls.
Ancient people believed that when the understanding of how to live by God's laws, people have disappeared, the gods come to the people, to send them back on the right path. Ancient people knew how to influence the nature and the world through symbols, faces (crabs). They believed that the sound vibrations, light and fire — are one.
Part of the native language are the names of the Slavs and Aryans. They believed that to call a person a name, incomprehensible, or another family owned, meaning his soul to get rid of white light. In what kind of a person was born, the one for him and the best. Now, unfortunately, is a lot of mixed marriages, which is detrimental effects on children. The names given to children under the Kolodarem (Calendar — "the gift of God Carols"). There were names of tribal, family and kolodarnye. When the child was given the specific name of God, it was believed that this God will protect and preserve it, and inspire. The ancients believed that the whole is the divine reason, even for the time and date of birth.
Generic names — those that are common in the family, and Rohde. It is believed that the newborn with the acquisition of a family name, and also gets the power, and the ability of their ancestors.
The ancients also believed that not everyone who has a human body, is the man. Being in a human body without a soul — not the person. They believed in the body at different levels, there are vibrations that are faithful to the Word strengthened and weakened from wrong. Therefore, the name and the language in which a man said to correspond to the inner world of man. They know that it is important to name children according to tradition, not to take from other nations, even if the name "sounded good."
In Russia, the man was given two names: one — the false, for all, and more — in secret, only for the man and his very close friends. This tradition has existed as a protection against evil spirits and bad people. Often the first Slavic name was obviously unattractive (curves, ugly, anger), for even greater protection from evil. After all, not having the key to the essence of man, to hurt much more difficult. Second naming rite was performed in adolescence, when the main character traits formed. The name was given on the basis of these features. Slavic names abounded in its diversity, there were groups of names, reflecting:
1) flora and fauna (Pike, Ruff, hare, wolf, eagle, Walnut, Borsch)
2) the order of birth (Pervushov, Vtorak, Tretiak)
3) gods and goddesses (Lada, Yarilo)
4) human qualities (brave, standing)
The main group of names — dibasic (Sviatoslav Dobrozhir, Tihomir, Ratibor, Yaropolk, Gostomysla, Velimudr, Vsevolod, Bogdan, Dobrogneva, anywhere, peace, Svetozar) and their derivatives (Holy Man, Dobrynya Tishilo, Ratisha, Putyata, Yarilka, Miloneg) .
Of these names is easy to trace the process of deriving the name: of dibasic and cut off the second part of the ending or suffix (-neg,-lo,-ta,-cloth,-sha-Yata,-nya,-ka).
Example: Sviatoslav: Holy + wa = Holy Man.
The names of people represent the culture and traditions of the people. Today in Russia, Slavic names referred to only 5% of children, which, of course, and so impoverishes almost disappeared Slavic culture.
