What you think about that?

Personally, I'm kalevala-Shamanist and I want to follow traditions of my ancestors. Odinism not belongs to Finland, and I think that our ancient religions would be the best of my nation ;) :beer-smil

Probably true, since Odinism is Germanic.

What you think about that?I have loved the Kalevala since I was a child. An famous theosophical commentary is Pekka Ervast's
Key to the Kalevala (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1577330218/qid=1096447802/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/102-4164382-2417743?v=glance&s=books&n=507846). There is also an attractive Tarot deck from U.S. Games, called simply the Kalevala Tarot (http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/kalevala/). Finally, here is a link to a PDF (http://www.solargeneral.com/library/Kalevala.pdf) of the English translation given in your message.

Thank you for those links :icon_biggYou're quite welcome! I also have a PocketPC version of the Kalevala that I read when I'm on the train. If you have a PocketPC and are interested, I can look up the link or post the file somewhere for you to download.

Thanks Siegmund, but I don't have pocketPD, and I prefer original book ;)

The Finnish record company Ondine has produced a CD "The Kalevala Heritage, Archive recordings of Ancient Finnish songs"

The CD contains a selection of original recordings, the oldest of which have a considerable rarity value, since they were made already at the turn of the 20th century. The CD was produced in collaboration with the Folklore archives of the Finnish Literature Society.
