“Life is a miracle. It is worth seeing this miracle, recognising it in ourselves and then our days are spent in the radiance of the Sun, in the light of God, on the path of Love.”
– Zoltán Sólyomfi-Nagy
Hungarian Wisdom Keeper dressed in traditional costume – Zoltán Sólyomfi-Nagy
Hungarian Wisdom Keeper Zoltán Sólyomfi-Nagy is a teacher, ethnographer, cultural anthropologist, poet, composer, old singer, drummer and rattle maker. His research on European and Hungarian traditions and his explorations and encounters with other Native Peoples brought him to revive, among others, Solstice Traditions such as the Hungarian Sundance.
The full talk is available above, which includes additional explanations about the local sweat lodge tradition (cserga), the writings which describe these ancient traditions and more on the philosophy of the solstice, not being a fight of light over darkness.
Zoltán is the founder of the TENGRI Community, which is a community of people who want to get to know, preserve, practice and pass on the original Hungarian spirit and worldview. Find out more by visiting the TENGRI community website.
