The Sacred Djed Pillar is Not a Phallic Emblem nor a Spinal Column


Djed Murals

For the record, this montage was not created or posted by me, but it is interesting and I would like to know the source of the Meso-American images, so that I can research it further. What do the experts say about them? I have studied the Raising of the Djed Pillar Egyptian Iconography in depth and have a lot to say about it, but I would need to know a lot more about the compared Meso-American Icons before making a judgement about them. As for the Raising the Djed ritual in ancient Egyptian Art, the current vogue in interpretation regarding this is that the Djed is a phallic symbol and you can surmise the rest. Frankly I am so sick of the nonsense that passes for scholarship in our time, that it just amazes me how anyone can take the promulgators of such trash seriously. The Egyptians were not shy about depicting the phallus of God, and so if they had wanted the Was or the Djed Scepters or Pillar to be a phallus, they would have rendered it as one. 

See the hieroglyph of Heru-Ausu as MN ‘MIN’. It is an erect penis. This is a perfect hieroglyph or pictographic pun for the name of the FATHER OF MANKIND, MANU. MN=MANU. As for the Djed as the phallus of the dead Ausar, the version of the Story of Isis and Osiris in which Isis begets Horus upon the dead corpse of Osiris (Ausar), this is the artistic cognate of the Tantric image of Shiva Shava (Siva as a Corpse) with Shakti on top of him copulating with him. Nowhere in either Tradition, Indian or Egyptian (or Near Eastern) is anything like the Djed Pillar or the Raising the Djed Ritual involved. Instead we have many examples of the TET or DJED Tree or Pillar(s) being worshiped as TREES or LOGS and as aniconic Tree Forms of the Lord in the Near East. These Sacred Trees or Pillars (Stambhas) represent Divine PERSONS not parts of persons, like a penis or part of a back-bone. 

One of these Trees / Pillars is the Asherah Shekinah / Shakti of the Jewish Duo-Deity ELI-YAHU. With ELI and YAHU this threesome of Trees or Pillars is HARI (Krishna), VASUDEVA (Balabhadra) and SUBHADRA. The Greeks called this Triad Helios Apollo, Dionysos and Artemis. Artemis was the older female twin of Apollo (Helios Kouros). Artemis was definitely Subhadra-Kali or Durga when Durga is considered the Sister and not the Consort of Vishnu. I have seen and read about numerous iconographic and doctrinal connections between Subhadra and Artemis as the Shaktis of Helios-Apollo and Krishna. The idea that the Djed Pillar(s) are Phallic Symbols is just ridiculous, considering that one of the Djed Triad Trees or Pillars represents Asherah the Shakti of ELI-YAHU!

  1. The mural images are from Cacaxtla, Tlaxcala in Eastern central Mexico. They are from the Classical period in Mesoamerica. The images depict the formation of the two primary warrior societies (Eagle and Jaguar). The column is what scholars usually refer to as a “serpent bar”, and it symbolizes divine power.
