We use the terms Sayari Paganism and The Klana Way interchangeably. However, the two terms do represent two different aspects of the same Path.
What Is Sayari Paganism?
The Klana Way is a pagan tradition of Sayari Paganism. Sayari Paganism is a religion that views the Earth and her Nature to be not only sacred, but also a living being. We name this being Sayari.
Other cultures, religions and people have their own names for her. Some call her Mother Nature, others call her Gaia.
In Sayari Paganism, we view the Earth as Sayari’s body. Her soul, spirit, or life energy, however you wish to call it, is often called Nature as a general term by the general population.
Sayari is our mother and our home. We are cells of her body, much like our body has cells. All life on Earth are her children, and depend on her to live. Her health is affected by the health and actions of her cells, all of Klana Karichna and Klana Vejna.
Sayari Is Our Mother
All of Klana Karichna was born from the Womb of Sayari. A long time ago, the waters of Earth (Sayari’s Womb) began to grow life. This life was simple, single celled organisms. There wasn’t really any variation or different species of single celled organisms. There was just life. The fetus of Klana Karichna.
Over time, these first babies of Klana Karichna began to grow, to evolve and to change. They took different directions in their evolution. Regardless, all of Klana Karichna come from these first babies of Klana Karichna.
The Story we tell goes like this, in brief.
In Sayari’s Womb began to grow a life, a small, simple life that she named Karichna. Karichna began to grow inside the Womb of Sayari, and had children of her own. Some of these children stayed inside Sayari’s womb, while others we born to the outside and crawled on the land that is Sayari’s body. Some of Karichna’s children were the dolphins, others the sharks, whales and various kinds of fish. Some of Karichna’s children were the dogs, the birds, the humans, the insects.
All of Karichna’s children are brother and sister, and are grandchildren to Sayari, the Great Mother of Klana Sayari.
We aim to show love to our Great Mother and help her, care for her and protect her as she does for us.
